The Festival of St Cecilia: A Celebration of Music

FoSC 2019 banner

Help Musicians’ annual Festival of St Cecilia: A Celebration of Music will be returning to Westminster Abbey to pay homage to the Patroness of music, St Cecilia and the musicians whose legacies continue to enrich our lives through their music.
