Presented by Notre Dame Alumni Association
Join Prof. Mark Doerries, Director of the Notre Dame Children’s Choir and Director of Graduate Studies for Sacred Music at Notre Dame, a graduate degree program that trains tomorrow’s vocalists, organists, and conductors to reinvigorate music in the church, concert hall, and stage. In 2015, Doerries commissioned GRAMMY award-winning jazz pianist J.J. Wright to compose a work for Advent for children’s voices, graduate vocal soloists, orchestra, and jazz trio. The resulting work, “O Emmanuel”, fuses historic genres of Catholic sacred music, chant, carols, and classical music with jazz improvisation. Ten-time GRAMMY winner and jazz trumpeter Arturo Sandoval joined the choirs and vocalists of Sacred Music at Notre Dame in 2018 for a new album of classing Christmas carols with a jazz twist.
Join the live discussion on Wednesday, December 16, at 1 p.m. ET / 6 p.m. GMT with Lisa Caulfield, Director of the Global Centre at Kylemore with special guests, guests Mark Doerries and J.J. Wright.
