Principles of Chant will be offered entirely on the campus of Saint Joseph’s Seminary from July 25-28.
Both classes will be taught by Doctor Jennifer Donelson, associate professor and director of sacred music at the Seminary.

These courses are being offered in conjunction with the Saint Cecilia Academy for Pastoral Musicians, a four-course, fully accredited program offered through Saint Joseph’s Seminary in the field of liturgical music for the purpose of introducing musicians to the history, theology, and pastoral principles of liturgy and sacred music.
