Marywood Celebrates Spiritual Heritage and Cultural Life through Music


The Music, Theatre, and Dance Department recently completed its work on a CD, titled Meditations. The recording is a celebration of spiritual music for violin and piano, featuring Sophie Till, M.M., clinical assistant professor of violin, and Ron Stabinsky, pianist.

The music represented in Meditations is from different denominations and was recorded in the Marian Chapel. By selecting repertoires from across the denominational spectrum, the music reflects many different faiths, from music for a Bar Mitzvah to music for Easter about the crucifixion, as well as spirituals from the African American tradition. The repertoire has been used for several concerts, including two in the United Kingdom.

Meditations can be purchased online. Proceeds from the sale of the CD benefit the Music, Theatre, and Dance Department.
