Faculty of Music

Overview

On October 31, 1970, from among all the universities in the Middle East and North Africa, the Holy Spirit University of Kaslik was the first to undertake the initiative of founding, within the Faculty of Letters, the Institute of Musicology. It would be unnecessary to highlight how much Lebanon and the whole region was in need of such initiative.

This Institute was established, thanks to the efforts deployed particularly by Rev. Fr. Louis Hage, Founder and Director of the Institute from 1970 until 1986, and Rev. Fr. Etienne Sacre, President of the University between 1968 and 1974.

Since 1986, the number of students has considerably increased. In order to educate them and respond to their aspirations, while simultaneously following the evolution of music as a science and an art in other countries, the University firstly added some more sections. Then, in 1993, it took the decision to transform the Institute of Musicology into the Faculty of Music; this was thanks to the dynamism of Rev. Fr. Youssef Tannous, Director of the Institute between 1986 and 1993 and the first Dean of the Faculty of Music between 1993 and 1995.
