The service will feature guest speaker Dr. Mary Ann Saunders and will be presided over by The Very Rev'd M. Ansley Tucker. Mark McDonald, our Assistant Director of Music will also debut a new pride anthem on the organ.
The event will be followed by a reception, with refreshments, in the nave with special musical guests, including performances by the Klezbians - a band of primarily queer, mostly-Jewish women, who delight in sharing the toe-tapping, contagious melodies of Jewish and klezmer tunes. The reception will also feature a duet by Cathedral choir members Caroline Allen and Juliet Beckwith – accompanied by Mark McDonald, Assistant Director of Music.
The event will be in person and livestreamed.
