June 25 – June 30, 2018
Loyola University – Lakeshore*
The Church Music Association of America is proud to invite you to celebrate with us as we hold our 28th Colloquium in 2018, to be held at the Loyola University* Lakeshore Campus in Chicago, Illinois. 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 2018 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! Liturgies will be held at the beautiful chapel at Loyola University, Madonna della Strada.
The CMAA Colloquium is primarily focused on instruction and experience in chant and the Catholic sacred music tradition, participation in chant choirs, lectures and performances and daily liturgies. During the week, you’ll be able to participate in ordinary and extraordinary form Masses, in Latin, Latin/Spanish and English, as well as morning Lauds and sung night prayer.
As a participant, you are an integral part of the beautiful music from the Roman Catholic tradition. Experience not only the traditional Gregorian chant and Renaissance polyphony of the church’s musical treasure, but also new compositions of English propers and ordinaries by various composers, as well as modern motets. For the first time, the Sacred Music Colloquium will also offer Mass in Spanish, with Spanish propers and a Latin Ordinary for our Wednesday liturgy.
