The Lyceum in Cleveland Host Symposium on Sacred Art, Architecture and Music

Recently, I received a note from the Headmaster at The Lyceum, a Catholic school which pursues a classical liberal arts curriculum in the Cleveland, Ohio area, about a symposium that will be offered there one week from today, Monday, June 7th, on Sacred Art, Architecture and Music.

The speakers for the symposium will include none other than Fr. Samuel Weber, OSB, the Director of the Institute of Sacred Music in the Archdiocese of St. Louis, and William Heyer, a classical architect who also teaches at the Pontifical College Josephinum in Columbus, Ohio. In addition, a local art historian, Dr. Sarah Smith, will also be speaking. These will be presented at the school, which is located at 2062 Murray Hill Road. For times, please inquire with the school.

Mass will also be offered at beautiful St. Stephen's Church (which we recently featured, showing some of their splendid collection of vestments) at 10:00am. The church is located at 1930 W. 54th St. in Cleveland.

I would encourage those in the Cleveland, Ohio, are to take this opportunity to attend.

About the Lyceum: "The Lyceum is a coeducational, college preparatory school dedicated to providing a classical Catholic education to students in grades seven through twelve.
Our unique program combines academic standards that can compete with other prestigious private schools, along with a serious emphasis on knowing, loving, and living the Catholic faith and culture.

"We believe that every student deserves a one-on-one encounter with the greatest minds that have ever lived. From the study of Euclid's Elements to the Federalist Papers, Lyceum students are immersed in the perennial ideas at the very core of western civilization."

The Lyceum, incidentally, has their own Schola Cantorum with sample tracks online from a CD they have released. Do take a moment to listen to what the students are doing.
