SATURDAY, MAY 15TH AT NOON PST
Learn from a Catholic Maestro the secrets of creativity! Sir James MacMillan will join us live from Scotland.
Apply to be a panelist or join as an observer.
In 2019, Sir James MacMillan was the fourth most performed living composer in the world.
In 2019, Sir James MacMillan's Stabat Mater received its Vatican premier in the Sistine Chapel. Sir James MacMillan's new Mass welcomed Pope Benedict XVI to England and Cardinal Henry Newman to sainthood. When the Scottish Parliament opened again for the first time in almost 300 years, Sir James MacMillan's fanfare accompanied the Queen.
And he's coming to the Benedict XVI Institute (cosponsored with the San Francisco Office of Pastoral Ministry) via Zoom.
The rest of us are invited to register to listen in and be amazed. To admire. And to be inspired to create beauty in our own life and work.

Don't miss this rare opportunity to observe a discussion between America's best sacred musicians and one of the world's most renowned composers.
“...a composer so confident of his own musical language that he makes it instantly communicative to his listeners."
“It has been aptly said of MacMillan that “His musical language is flooded with influences from his Scottish heritage, Catholic faith, social conscience and close bond with Celtic folk music; plus influences from Far Eastern, Scandinavian and East European music.”"
“I think music today is as important as ever. It’s a language that speaks beyond words and images, and that’s why it’s so mysterious, and so strangely beautiful.”
