Here is very sad news:
Westminster Choir College faculty members received layoff notices from Rider University via email yesterday. All of the professors at the world-renowned school will be laid off as of Aug. 3.
Chant specialist Fr. Gerard Farrell OSB, monk of Saint John’s Abbey, taught at Westminster 1976-1999, and in his later years he also taught chant summer courses in the MA in Liturgical Music at St. John’s School of Theology.
