Venture into the darkened expanse of a Gothic cathedral for a spine-tingling specter of spooky musical classics for All Hallows Eve. From Bach’s terrifying Toccata and Fugue in D minor to the blood-curdling wail of Purcell’s witches, experience Washington National Cathedral’s world-class musicians in that thin musical space between this world and the next.

Featuring Cathedral Organist, Tom Sheehan, and the instrumental and vocal ensemble of Cathedra, co-directed by Michael McCarthy and Daniel Lee.
