The Killeen Chair of Theology and Philosophy Lecture Series will present "Anam Cara: A Celebration of Celtic Sacred Music," performed by the St. Norbert College music department, on Tuesday, Oct. 9, at 7 p.m. at Old St. Joe's Church on the St. Norbert College campus. The event is free and open to the public.

The event will feature a variety of Celtic hymns and melodies performed by the St. Norbert College student choirs, bell choir, clarinet choir and vocal and instrumental soloists, including performances on the bagpipes and Celtic harp. The event will also feature speakers William Hyland, assistant professor of classical studies/director of the Center for Norbertine Studies, Bridget Burke-Ravizza, associate professor of religious studies, Deirdra Egan-Ryan, associate professor of English, and Fr. David McElroy.

The Killeen Chair of Theology and Philosophy was established in 1984 to bring figures in the fields of theology and philosophy to the St. Norbert College campus. The Killeen Chair draws attention to the importance of theology and philosophy in a Catholic liberal arts education and highlights the commitment of St. Norbert College to provide an education that is personally, intellectually and spiritually challenging. The Killeen Chair is an appropriate way of honoring Abbot Sylvester Killeen's many contributions to St. Norbert College, the Norbertine order and the wider community.
