The music program at The Cathedral of the Madeleine is exemplary. Not only does it have a fine adult choir and organist, it also has a full-time choir school for boys and girls. Susan plays music from the choir’s CDs, music that is beautiful and shows the range of their abilities. Susan especially emphasizes the choir school, as it is the only school of its kind in the United States.
Susan presents a general recap of the Church Music Association of America’a 2013 Sacred Music Colloquium, held at The Cathedral of the Madeleine, Salt Lake City, Utah. The structure of the program follows the liturgical services during the Colloquium, plus one organ recital. Susan plays 1-2 pieces each from all the Masses, the Friday night Vespers, and Charles Cole’s organ recital, as examples of what goes on at the Colloquium.
