The Liturgical Music Institute offers musical, liturgical and pastoral formation for both new and experienced liturgical musicians. Over the course of five and a half days, participants take a ten-hour liturgical theology course, skills workshops (organ, voice, cantor, choral conducting, music theory or music composition) and plenum workshops that focus on specific pastoral dimensions of liturgical music ministry. They also attend spiritual conferences, sung Morning and Evening Prayer and daily Mass and interact with the faculty and other liturgical participants from around
the United States to share ideas, concerns and best practices. The week culminates with a choral concert featuring the faculty and participants of the Institute.
This year’s Institute, which will run from July 28 to August 2, 2019, will be led by well-known and respected faculty members: Rev. Paul Colloton, OSFS, Frank Crosio, Msgr. Joseph DeGrocco, Christopher Ferraro, Raymond Henderson, Susan Hugelmeyer, Keith Kalemba, Lisa Kelly, Matthew Koraus, Rev. Ricky Manalo, CSP, John Miller, Mike Novak and Steven Warner. The principal sponsors of the Liturgical Music Institute are World Library Publications, the music and liturgy division of J.S. Paluch and NPM.
The Seminary of the Immaculate Conception, situated on 215 acres close to the Long Island Sound, provides a unique and tranquil setting for the Institute. Liturgies will be held in the historic monastic chapel with its three manual E.M. Skinner organ. Classrooms and meeting rooms are equipped with state of the art technology.
