Don’t delay… Register now for the CMAA’s Sacred Music Colloquium.
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 2017 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 three great venues – the Chapel of St. Thomas Aquinas on the University of St. Thomas campus, the Church of St. Mark, and St. Agnes Church. In addition, we will have an organ recital at the beautiful Cathedral of St. Paul on Wednesday evening.
Each participant typically participates in two choirs — one chant and one polyphony. You have the opportunity to sing with fantastic directors along with other participants who love sacred music at liturgies during the week. With wide-ranging breakout topics covering a host of subjects, you can expand your knowledge and hear what other musicians are doing across the country (and the world).
Enjoy the lovely campus of the University of St. Thomas, where the sessions will held during the week.
