Church. Academy. Stage. Community.
We are an ecumenical graduate music program with a Roman Catholic core that offers three areas of professional training: organ, choral conducting, and voice. Our students enjoy opportunities to interact with the community via our Children’s Choir and work in local parishes.
Our faculty are renowned scholars and musicians in church music, performance, theology, composition, musicology, and music theory.
Students may apply to the Masters of Sacred Music (MSM) in organ, voice, and choral conducting, or the Calvin M. Bower Doctor of Musical Arts (DMA) in organ and choral conducting.
Our graduates go on to work in churches, universities, schools, and artistic organizations worldwide.
