Scene from field trip to Grace Farms


The ISM reaches out to local and national communities of faith, and worldwide to its alumni, to scholars and to all interested in the intersections of sacred music, worship, and the arts.  Pictured below is just a small sampling of the ISM’s many initiatives.

NEW and Coming Soon

After a period of reflection, the ISM is launching a series of new initiatives, many centered around themes of diversity, equity, and inclusion that were the focus of intensive discussions with ISM faculty, alumni, students, and other collaborators at Yale and beyond.

These include a 4-part webinar series on “Accompanying the Dying and the Dead in the Time of Covid” in June, 2021; a series of annual conferences on “Black Sacred Arts” kicking off in 2022; a new choral commissioning program; and much more to be announced.
