The CMAA is thrilled to announce the call for participation for a conference celebrating the legacy of Msgr. Richard Schuler and the Twin Cities Catholic Chorale in St. Paul, Minnesota.
As many of you know, the longtime pastor of St. Agnes Church in St. Paul, Msgr. Richard Schuler, was the vice president of the CMAA for 10 years, and also served as the editor of the Association’s journal, Sacred Music, for many years. He left an immense legacy at St. Agnes, in the Archdiocese of St. Paul and Minneapolis, and far beyond, not only as a church musician of the highest order, but also as a wise pastor. Indeed, Bishop Sample (of whom there was news earlier today) is just one of the vocations to have come out of St. Agnes under Msgr. Schuler’s tutelage. For the past 40 years, the choir he founded and directed (the Twin Cities Catholic Chorale) has been singing orchestral Masses every Sunday during season at St. Agnes church in St. Paul. This conference will celebrate the 40th season of the TCCC’s residency at St. Agnes.
This conference promises to be a truly wonderful event for anyone who is interested in the Church’s sacred music and liturgy.
We’ve just posted the call for participation at the conference website, and post it here as well for all those scholars and musicians interested in submtting a proposal, as well as a taste of what the conference will offer.
Mark your calendars! October 13-15, 2013 at St. Agnes and the Cathedral of St. Paul in St. Paul, Minnesota!
