Special guest honoree: Richard Proulx
Richard Proulx has been called “the most significant liturgical composer of the last twenty years” (Modern Liturgy Magazine), and is an acclaimed choral conductor, music editor, and organist. A native of Saint Paul, Minnesota, he was Organist/Music Director at Holy Name Cathedral in Chicago from 1980-1994, where he established an extensive and innovative music program and founded The Cathedral Singers, an independent recording ensemble. The group has sung throughout the Midwest and has produced over twenty recordings of choral music. Richard Proulx is a widely published composer of more than 300 works, including congregational music in every form, sacred and secular choral works, song cycles, two operas, and instrumental and organ music. We are pleased to honor Richard Proulx’s enormous contributions to choral music at “The Black and Red Ball.”
