Call in to speak with the host
Please join us on February 13th as Leigh Bortins interviews Robert Cathcart. Mr. Cathcart will be speaking at our upcoming Toward the Quadrivium event in March. In this show, Mr. Cathcart will be talking about music education from a practical and pastoral perspective. He is a CC Dad and will also be addressing music eduation from a homeschool perspective as well.
Robert Cathcart serves as Pastor of Friendship Presbyterian Church (PCA) in the hamlet of Hickory Tavern, near Greenville, SC. Robert’s wife, Sarah, currently directs Challenge I for Classical Conversation’s Downtown Greenville group, where the oldest three of their four children are enrolled. Robert grew up in a musical home and holds a Bachelor of Music Education from the University of South Carolina. While studying in Columbia, Robert became principal trombone in the USC Symphony Orchestra, USC Wind Ensemble, and played lead in the Left Bank Big Band Jazz Ensemble. Before entering seminary, Robert substituted with the Augusta Symphony, South Carolina Philharmonic, Charleston Symphony and the Durham (NC) Symphony.
During his studies, Robert began writing hymn texts set to familiar tunes, an activity that he continues today. Basing the new texts on sermons that he prepares for his congregation, Robert follows in the footsteps of prominent ministers such as Richard Baxter, Isaac Watts, John Newton, and Charles Wesley. Currently, Robert has two collections of congregational song available for use: Psalms, Hymns, and Canticles, and Christian Psalms for the Twenty-first Century.
