Dan Schutte Concert
March 29, 2019 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm
A Lenten Evening of Music and Reflection
Come join us for an evening of music and reflection that will be sure to stir our hearts and guide us to a new awareness of God’s work within us. For years, the music of Dan Schutte has anchored the faith of Christians and inspired us to draw closer to God. Some of Dan’s most celebrated songs — “Here I Am, Lord,” “City of God” and “Sing a New Song” — are from his years of collaboration with the St. Louis Jesuits. More recent collections like To Praise You and his Mass setting Mass of Christ the Savior continue to exhibit that enduring ability to reach into people’s hearts, young and old, and draw them into prayer.
Friday, March 29, 2019, 7-9 p.m. Freewill offering.
Dan Schutte is one of the best-known and most influential composers of Catholic music for liturgy in the English-speaking world. In addition to his Jesuit formation, Dan holds two master’s degrees, one in theology and one in liturgy, from the Graduate Theological Union in Berkeley, California. He did graduate studies in music composition under the direction of Fr. Kevin Waters, SJ, at Seattle University. He has three honorary degrees for his contribution to the life of the Church.
Dan has served as liturgist and music director in various pastoral and academic settings. That experience, his deep knowledge of Sacred Scripture and a strong sense of Ignatian spirituality form the basis of every event he leads. Dan spends a significant amount of time each year travelling to offer concerts, retreat, workshops and parish missions to communities throughout the country. His ministry has had an enormous impact of the spiritual journey of millions of people.
Currently, Dan is composer-in-residence at the University of San Francisco.
