Exploring sacred music in all its dimensions.

Our research and teaching program is interdisciplinary and ecumenical with a Catholic core—and our graduates are artists and humanists who work in churches, universities, and artistic organizations across the nation and worldwide.

Applications for the Sacred Music Program are due on January 15 and auditions will take place on March 4, 2016.  We will begin reviewing pre-screening DVD's, CD's, or online links after December 1.  Both the pre-screening material and the application must be submitted in order to be invited for a live audition.  If you are unable to make any of these deadlines please send an email to
