National Cathedral

As some of you know, I sing with the Cathedral Choral Society which means I get to sing and perform at the Washington National Cathedral. It is a true privilege and I am so glad I joined.

Unfortunately we practice at night which means I hardly ever get to enjoy the truly spectacular stained glass windows.

Today we had a morning rehearsal to prepare for our upcoming concerts of Carmina Burana with the Washington Ballet so I spent some time afterwords looking at and taking pictures of the stunning stained glass windows.
