The Sacred Music Institute (SMI) at Mount St. Mary’s Seminary & School of Theology (MTSM) provides a center for both public musical performance and educational outreach in the realm of Catholic sacred music. The Institute serves parishes, priests and musicians in Catholic dioceses across the region by providing events and resources to those interested in and passionate about sacred music.
The Institute will sponsor the Music & Liturgy performance series at MTSM, an annual summer conference – which will celebrate its 4th year in July 2022 – and courses and lectures focusing on important topics in sacred music which will be offered during the academic year.
At the center of the SMI will stand Pasi Opus 29, our new organ which will be installed in the fall of 2022. This instrument will support and accompany all of the liturgies and performances at MTSM.
