ISM featured on PBS' "Religion & Ethics Newsweekly"

May 5, 2015

In February, the crew of PBS’ Religion & Ethics Newsweekly filmed Marquand worship and interviewed faculty and students about the work that goes on at the ISM.  The segment aired on May 8, and may be viewed on the PBS website here. Program description below (from PBS): 

“We take viewers to New Haven and New York to hear students and instructors speak artistically and spiritually about the power of experiencing sacred music. Many students who devote themselves to studying religious music and theology at the more-than-40-year-old Yale Institute of Sacred Music feel it deepens their spiritual lives and connects them to a tradition they hope to pass along and make relevant for contemporary audiences. Says institute director Martin Jean: “We exist to integrate theological education and musical education with artistic education.” Institute students study music, art history, the Bible, Christian theology, literature, poetry, architecture, and liturgy—all at the same time.”
