About the Great Spaces Music & Arts Series

Many noteworthy music events are offered in the region, but none in such a great space as Grace Cathedral in Topeka, KS.  With its soaring height, stained-glass windows, native stonework and fabulous acoustics, the Cathedral building itself becomes a part of every performance and transforms those who perform here to an aesthetic level greater than they might achieve on their own.

Artists are chosen who appreciate performing in a sacred space.  Ultimately, the creativity and beauty offered during concerts is a showcase of the beauty of mankind which is God’s creation.

Artists are local, regional, national and even international.  They are names you will recognize and names that will be new to you, but they are all artists whom you will indeed appreciate.  We feature organ and piano recitals, large and small choral ensembles, chamber orchestras and instrumentalists, brass ensembles, jazz groups and more.  It is a series that is diverse, yet familiar.

Concerts are usually about one hour in length.  By asking performers to condense their programs to a more manageable length, you will experience their best.  Many concerts also include a post-concert reception where you can enjoy a treat and spend time meeting with the performers and your friends and take some more time to explore the Cathedral.  When available, performers’ CDs are also offered for sale following their concerts.
