Director of Liturgical Music for the Diocese of Raleigh
For our second January show, we chat with Michael Accurso, the Director of Liturgical Music for the Catholic Diocese of Raleigh and Sacred Heart Cathedral in Raleigh. A New Jersey native, Michael is a conductor, organist, composer, and vocalist, and he enjoys an active schedule in academics, concert performance, commissions, and liturgical music. He is currently completing his doctorate in choral conducting at the University of Notre Dame. This past year, Bishop Burbidge commissioned him to write a hymn for the dedication of Holy Name of Jesus Cathedral, which is to take place on July 26, 2017. The hymn is entitled, I Will Praise Your Name Forever, a congregational hymn honoring the Holy Name of Jesus, based on Psalm 145.
