A 20th anniversary season featuring more than 30 events begins Sept. 18 for the Cathedral Arts Project.

Scheduled for Sept. 18 is a concert featuring James Higdon, professor of organ and director of the division of organ and church music division at the University of Kansas at Lawrence. He will perform music by Jehan Alain, a French composer.

'(Alain) was a genius and left behind a wonderful body of work," said Brother William Woeger, FSC, director of Cathedral Arts Project.

Another highlight of this anniversary season is the popular, Blessing of the Animals Oct. 1. Last year 500 people and their animals, including the Humane Society's PAWS program and the mounted police, were present for the blessing on the cathedral front steps.

The premier event this fall is the Paul Winter Consort concert Nov. 19. 'We have been talking about bringing The Paul Winter Consort to Omaha for 15 years now and we are finally getting a chance this year," said Brother Woeger.

The Cathedral Flower Festival is scheduled for Jan. 28-29 and is co-sponsored by CAP and Lauritzen Gardens. This popular event consists the work of regional artists with floral interpretations. The Flower Festival brings in 15,000 people annually to the cathedral.

From January to February, The Beauty of Books, an exhibit of antique and contemporary handmade books, will be presented in the cultural center. That exhibit is being offered in conjunction with a Joslyn Art Museum show called 'Illuminating the Word: The Saint John's Bible."

Throughout the season, the organ at the Cathedral will be featured at various events.

Cathedral Arts Project (CAP), a non-profit, interfaith organization, was founded in 1985 to promote and celebrate the performing and visual arts through the unique setting of Saint Cecilia's Cathedral and the Cathedral Cultural Center. It receives no funding from the parish or the Archdiocese of Omaha.

'The work of this organization is important because it assists the cathedral in its role as a cathedral "“ to be a gathering place for all people" said Brother Woeger. 'It is a way of making a connection between spirituality and the arts."

All programming and production costs are paid for by CAP members. This year, CAP will donate 10 percent of every membership to the American Red Cross for victims of Hurricane Katrina. For more information on memberships and events, please consult
