or as a PODCAST after it airs.  

Episode No. 59 Saturday, April 6, 2019 GIA Music staff and composers: Kate Williams, Senior Managing Editor, Peter Kolar, Editor for Spanish and Bilingual Music, Dr. Tony Alonso, Professor and Composer

Hear a fascinating discussion of the Catholic Publishing world and the process a composer might go through to get a piece published by one of the leading Catholic Music Publishers. This great company, over 75 years old, whose name is the Gregorian Institute of America (GIA) began in Pittsburgh PA and now is based Chicago. It is responsible for much of the great music sung in the church today. This episode’s guests have a unique role as parish musicians and as senior editors and composers to shape the scope of music sung in the liturgies of this ever changing church. Listen as they give their insight into the service music, choral music, and ethic music needed for the church.

MUSIC: Sanctus (Community Mass) Richard Proulx
MUSIC: Ubi Caritas Ola Gjello
MUSIC: El Cielo Canta alegria (Heaven is Singing for Joy) Pablo Soso
MUSIC: The Greater Glory of God Tony Alonso

On Monday and Tuesday, August 27-28, 2018, the Organ Console and Pedalboard hoisted into the Choir Balcony.   See all of the events and history of the Hazel Wright Organ.


Saturday night, October 13, 2018 was the lighting of all of the Quatrefoils and entrance into the cathedral by the Bishops, donors, and all of our choirs, Diocesan Choir, Diocesan Children’s Choir and all three of our Cathedral Choirs, English, Spanish and Vietnamese. It was a great milestone in the completion of our cathedral to have us actually sing in our new home for the first time. The Cathedral Dedication is July 17, 2019. The Hazel Wright Organ should be playing and dedicated by January 2020.
