$1.6 million grant for Sacred Music at Notre Dame

$1.6 million grant for Sacred Music at Notre Dame

This is the program’s second grant from the Lilly Endowment, a private, philanthropic foundation that supports the causes of religion, education, and community development. The first, a $1.9 million grant in 2012, helped launch SMND. Since then, graduate students in the Master of Sacred Music and Doctor of Musical Arts programs working through SMND have expanded outreach efforts to churches across northern Indiana, including through the Notre Dame Children’s Choir.

The talks are video-recorded in front of live audiences and shared worldwide through the Internet. They’re typically brief (about 18 minutes), anecdotal and focused on a single idea about which the speaker feels passionately.
