The goal of this series is to bring unique performances to the downtown area on an annual basis in a beautiful setting unlike any other venue in the surrounding San Jose community. The cathedral Basilica will serve as the backdrop for this series of performances by artists of various cultures, traditions and styles. The Music@Market series partners with the Music at the Mission concert series in Fremont, Ca at the Mission San Jose. The series includes ticketed events marketed to the general public. Tickets can be purchased online. Look for our online brochure of artists in the fall of 2014 for our 2015 season. For more information please contact or call Julie Wind at (408)283-8100 ext 2205


Cathedral criteria and use standards:

The liturgical furnishings in the Cathedral cannot be adapted for any non-liturgical activity or use by any participant. These furnishings include the central Altar, auxiliary Altars, Eucharistic Altar, Ambo, Bishop’s chair and presbyterial bench. The liturgical furnishings are permanent placements and are to remain visible as symbols of Catholic faith and worship.

Customary music stands, chairs, risers, and podia for choirs and musicians may be introduced into the Cathedral for non-liturgical use. No platforms, however, may be introduced into the Cathedral which would require affixing to the flooring, or walls, or which in any way may impede ingress, or egress of the facility. Protective carpeting must be installed under all fixtures, and furniture temporarily installed to prevent marring of the floor finishes.The Cathedral is available for rental during the months not being used by our performing arts series.
