When: Sat., Dec. 9, 8 p.m. and Sun., Dec. 10, 2:30 p.m. 2017
If you like your Christmas songs with a dose of wonder and awe, not just all that ring-a-ding-ding ho-ho-ho jolly crap, you might want to celebrate Christmas at the Cathedralhis weekend. The St. Louis Archdiocesan Choirs & Orchestra promise to perform the music of Advent and Christmas in one of the most glorious spaces in the city — beneath the gorgeously mosaic-filled dome of the Cathedral Basilica. For both performances, mezzo-soprano Johanna Nordhorn takes the solo parts in John Rutter's Magnificat. Christmas at the Cathedral is performed at 8 p.m. Saturday and 2:30 p.m. Sunday (December 9 and 10) at the Cathedral Basilica (4431 Lindell Boulevard; cathedralstl.org). Tickets are $24 to $49.
