Come & Experience

Immerse yourself in the grandeur of our liturgies and concerts

For centuries, the Church has inspired generations of composers, singers, instrumentalists, and musicians of all kinds to dare to access the divine through the beauty of music in the context of the sacred Liturgy. The Basilica of the National Shrine of the Immaculate Conception fosters a robust music program where, week after week, you too can be part of this experience. Come be transformed by the power of sacred music. Sing to the Lord a new song!
