Christmas Day Recital at National Cathedral, 5:15 p.m.

I love to go to the National Cathedral on Christmas afternoon.

Tomorrow (Saturday, December 25), Cathedral organists Scott Dettra and Jeremy Filsell play a Christmas Day recital on the Cathedral’s great organ, following Lessons and Carols. Suggested donation: $10 per person. There is pay parking below the Cathedral.

(Come early for the beautiful service of Lessons and Carols at 4 p.m.)
