Magical. Transcendent. Stunning. Overwhelming. It made me cry.
These are some of the words critics and our audiences use to describe what it’s like to experience concerts and other performances in Grace Cathedral.
“The chance to hear music – gospel, classical, jazz or any other genre – in gorgeous Grace Cathedral should not be missed.”
– Jim Harrington, Bay Area Music Critic
Among the musical artists who have performed at Grace are Chanticleer, Kurt Elling, Bill Frisell, KD Lang, Branford Marsalis, Aaron Neville, Carlos Santana, Bonnie Raitt, and the Vienna Boys Choir. When it comes to dance and theatre, we’ve hosted American Conservatory Theater, Savion Glover, ODC Dance, Eve Ensler and Anna Deavere Smith. We partner with SFJAZZ, American Bach Soloists and other performing companies. Our organ recital series lets you hear some of the world’s greatest organists playing one of America’s greatest organs.
We put on concerts and other performance because we believe the arts are a path to the divine. Many of our events are offered for free and all are welcome.
