A program created and operated by St Mary’s Church, Hamilton Village, the Episcopal Church at Penn. The program aims to encourage and support composers and performers to collaborate in creating new music for use in Philadelphia’s architecturally and sonically remarkable sacred places, often (as is the case at St. Mary’s) by the congregations and in the context of liturgical practice.
The Project has created a major new avenue for the commissioning and performance of new works, five thus far. New Music for Sacred Places has been supported by the American Composers Forum, Philadelphia Chapter, the University of Pennsylvania, Partners for Sacred Places, Philadelphia Episcopal Cathedral, and St. Mary’s Church Hamilton Village.
