Hello. I am considering a Sacred Music degree. I am hoping to both perform and teach. So eventually Id like to get a Masters and even if necessary a PhD. What are some good universities for this?
You might contact Fr Andre Papkov at Holy Protection Cathedral in Chicago directly. Fr Andre is a professional vocal musician (his "secular" vocation if you will - although as a priest and dean of the cathedral he only "performs" in the context of his liturgical duties) and has performed as a vocal soloist in recordings of classical liturgical compositions. You might also contact Kurt Sander at St George's in Cincinnatti - again a professional musician. IIRC Fr Ivan Moody (another good resource) is in Europe but is also on Facebook. Any one of these three people might be able to give you some good guidance. Another resource that you might want to look at would be to attend the XXII All Diaspora Church Music Conference (see here and here). This organization is very professional in its approach to Church Music and I have no doubt you will be able to find many "kindred souls" there.
