Description:

The University of St. Michael's College is honoured to host the Right Rev. Mark MacDonald, the Anglican Church of Canada’s first National Indigenous Anglican Bishop, on Thursday, Feb. 14 in Charbonnel Lounge, where he will give the keynote address for this year's Annual Conference of the Society for Christian Scholarship in Music. A reception will follow.  Titled “The Musics of Indigenous Christians in North America,” Bishop MacDonald's talk will explore historical and contemporary interactions between indigenous music-making and Christian missions in North America, including the use, adaptation, and translation of European hymnody by Indigenous Christians, and the use of Indigenous music-making in Christian devotion and worship. Moving from practical examples, Bishop MacDonald will articulate the key theological principles that underpin these practices. He will also briefly identify some areas for future research in this growing field.  More information, including a full conference itinerary, can be found at the SCSM's website.
