Music 10 is a course for credit at the University of Pennsylvania, which matches Penn students with ten Philadelphia musicians for 20 lessons during the year. Students must audition in order to be placed in the program. As a way to “pay forward” the benefits of the Music 10 program, students are required to perform at various venues around the Campus of the University of Pennsylvania. St. Mary’s is fortunate enough to have 4 students who perform at St. Mary’s at various times throughout the year.
Our wonderful friends at the CA! Their mission “is to advocate for peace and justice and educate for faith development of the Penn community.” From their website: “The Christian Association at the University of Pennsylvania serves as an ecumenical resource at Penn and the greater community providing advocacy and direct service on cultural diversity, interfaith education, sexuality, and peacemaking. We do not proselytize to a religious ideology, and through advocacy and direct service we provide opportunities for individuals to develop their own personal voice.”
The Rev. Mariclair Partee Carlsen serves as the Episcopal Chaplain to the University of Pennsylvania, and is an associate chaplain at Penn. She represents the Episcopal Chaplaincy at Penn as a member of the Penn Religious Communities Council.
