Cathedra of sacred music in cuba

SMW Havana

Every year since 2014, the Cathedra of Sacred Music has convened the Sacred Music Week, a day of concerts, workshops, conference cycles and liturgical celebrations, the objective of which is to promote the study and listening of sacred repertoires from all eras and origins. It is the result of the joint effort of the bishoprics of Regensburg and Havana, especially the foundational visions of Cardinals Gerhard Ludwig Müller (Germany) and Jaime Ortega Alamino (Cuba). Since its first edition, it has been under the academic supervision of the Catholic University of Sacred Music and Musical Pedagogy of Regensburg (Hochschule für katholische Kirchenmusik & Musikpädagogik HfKM, Regensburg), translated into the almost permanent presence of its rector, the German organist Stefan Baier, and with the participation of prestigious European and Latin American professors and interpreters. Likewise, it has had the teaching and / or logistical support of the Esteban Salas Musical Heritage Cabinet (Office of the Historian of Havana), the Concert Music Center (Cuban Institute of Music), the University of Valladolid (Spain), the Baltisches Orgel-Centrum, the cultural councils of the German and Polish embassies in Cuba, among other institutions.
