Jesuit High School
The Church Music Association of America is proud to invite you to celebrate with us as we hold our 30th Colloquium in 2020, at Jesuit High School in Tampa, Florida. The CMAA’s Sacred Music Colloquium continues to be the largest and most in-depth teaching conference and retreat on sacred music in the world. Our 2020 program offers new and expanded opportunities for learning, singing, listening, and interacting with some of the best minds and musicians in the Catholic world today!
In an address to church musicians of Italy on September 28, Pope Francis echoed the teaching of Pope St. Pius X and Pope St. Paul VI: the sacred rites of the liturgy call for a music that is “distinct and different” from secular music: it should be holy, noble in artistry, and universal, with Gregorian chant as its “first model”. An English translation of his address is available at our site Chant Café.
