The Church Music Institute Has a New Home

The Church Music Institute has a new home! We have moved to the campus of St. Luke’s Episcopal Church in Dallas, Texas, which will provide new office, library, and meeting space for CMI. Additionally, St. Luke’s is welcoming CMI constituents to share its beautiful chapel and sanctuary, complete with fine organs, which will enable CMI to enhance services offered.

 “We are very excited to welcome the Church Music Institute to our campus and look forward to a cordial relationship and collaborations that will enrich the liturgical and musical life at St. Luke’s,” Fr. Gama said.  Fr. Gama’s training as a classical opera singer along with his love of the liturgy and music of the church will be an added benefit for our partnership. We have already established a strong working relationship with St. Luke’s staff including: Archdeacon Rosemary Trei, Director of Sacred Music Donna Clavijo, business manager Susie Pepitone, and facilities director Juan Chavez.

“Considering a move was something we took very seriously, and we are grateful to God for opening the door to this new partnership with St. Luke’s Episcopal.  They understand that, though we are housed in a church of one denomination, we are committed to serving the larger Church, enhancing the song that continues to be sung through the ages,” said Rev. Andy Odom, CMI board chair.

The Church Music Institute is also grateful to our former landlord, Saint Michael and All Angels Episcopal Church, for 7 1/2 years of partnership, during which we have grown from a regional organization to one now serving members nationally and internationally. Saint Michael’s collaboration, along with the Dr. Paul Lindsley Thomas’ music and archives, have made CMI a stronger resource to the church community worldwide.

We look forward to this new, exciting chapter in the life of Church Music Institute as we expand and enhance our service to the churches, musicians, and clergy who create worship in congregations everywhere.  Please copy our contact information below and visit us soon.
