Workshop Leaders

Marty Haugen is a liturgical composer from Eagan, Minnesota. For the past fifteen years he has presented workshops across North America, Europe, Australia, and Central America for both Roman Catholic and Protestant liturgical ministers. His communion setting, Now the Feast and Celebration, and his vespers service, Holden Evening Prayer, are well known among Lutheran congregations, while his Mass of Creation is arguably the most widely used musical setting of the Ordinary among English-speaking Roman Catholic parishes. Together with David Haas, he began the popular GIA psalm series, Psalms for the Church Year. Marty has over 250 separate titles published through GIA on more than twenty recorded collections, including such songs as “We Remember,” “Shepherd Me, O God,” and “Gather Us In.” His music appears in numerous GIA hymnals, as well as hymnals produced for Canadian and Australian Roman Catholics, the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America (ELCA), and numerous other Protestant denominations.

Tony Alonso is one of the most prominent voices in contemporary liturgical music. His music reflects an understanding of the multicultural needs of the contemporary Church as well as a commitment to strong ritual music. In addition to several published collections of liturgical music with GIA Publications (Chicago, Illinois), Tony’s music appears in numerous compilations and hymnals throughout North America. Tony has shared his musical gifts as well as his knowledge of liturgy at conferences and events across North America and Europe. In addition to his passion for sung prayer, Tony has a deep interest in engaging young people in the life and liturgy of the Church. He has authored several books on liturgy for youth and youth ministers with Saint Mary’s Press (Winona, Minnesota). A graduate of Northwestern University with a degree in choral conducting, Tony currently serves as the Director of Music for the Campus Ministry Team at Loyola Marymount University in Los Angeles, California.

Both are published by GIA Music.
