Music at the Cathedral of St. Philip exists at all because of the generous pledges made by members and friends of the Cathedral to its annual operating budget. The mission of Friends of Cathedral Music is to further enrich the life of the Cathedral of St. Philip and the broader Atlanta community by –  

  • Presenting concerts by nationally and internationally renowned ensembles and solo artists in our beautiful sacred space.
  • Providing hospitality and underwriting expenses related to the Cathedral choirs’ presentation of sacred choral masterworks which exceed the normal bounds of the Cathedral’s rich liturgical life.
  • From time to time, commissioning new music for liturgical use, thereby enriching the corpus of sacred repertoire broadly available to churches, and contributing to the ongoing musical legacy of the Cathedral in Atlanta and the world we seek to serve.

Annual membership as a Friend of Cathedral Music is open to all by donation. We invite you to consider supporting the Cathedral’s music ministry first by pledging to the Cathedral’s annual fund, and then to consider a donation to Friends of Cathedral Music. Friends are acknowledged in our printed concert programs and receive an invitation to a special donor reception.

We are delighted to announce that donors at the Saint, Seraphim, and Archangel levels will receive Patron tickets with preferred seating to select concerts, according to the category of patronage.

Individual Donor levels are:

Saint: $1,000 and above
Seraphim: $750-999
Archangel: $500–749
Angel: $250–499
Guarantor: $100–249
Patron: $50–99

Members of Friends of Cathedral Music who wish to supplement their financial contribution with donations of time and talent are welcome to join in providing hospitality to visiting artists and audiences, or to participate in audience development with the object of transcending boundaries of demographics and faith.
