“Why form a Chapter?

Musicians need musicians—not only for practical reasons: to learn from one another and get substitutes for vacation—but also for human reasons: to share insights and support for one another as you minister in your diocese.

Leadership is critical, but participation is essential."

-Rev. Virgil C. Funk, President Emeritus, NPM
