Sacred Music of the Americas
September 19 – October 10, 2013
Cathedral Concerts Exploring Sacred Music Seminars are designed to be informative and fun for the music lover to the trained musician.
This year’s Sacred Music Seminar focuses on the sacred music of the Americas. No country has such a diverse structure of churches and denominations as the United States. These seminars are going to explore some of the main Christian faith traditions, imported and genuine to the USA. Come and hear about the first American hymnals, composers, and musical heritage in American churches.
Classes are held on the lower level of the Cathedral in the St. Cecilia Chapel.
Lunch with the presenters follows each class.
