We are an ecumenical graduate music program with a Roman Catholic core. We offer three areas of concentration: organ, choral conducting, and voice. Our pedagogy emphasizes a breadth of experience, for the purpose of forming well-rounded musicians. Our students enjoy opportunities to interact with the community as church musicians, as children's choir directors, and as performers. Our graduates go on to work in churches, universities, schools, and artistic organizations worldwide.
