From Generation to Generation:
Developing and Strengthening
the Musical Tradition of Your Church Choir
St Andrew's Russian Orthodox Church
St Petersburg, Florida
This year's conference will
focus on choral tradition
in the Russian Orthodox Church - developing it
it is just starting to bloom, and strengthening it where
it is already blossoming.
Throughout the three-day program, an exciting blend
of historical, theoretical, and
practical considerations will
assist Orthodox conductors and singers in
learning about (and putting into action) what ought to be
one of their main concerns in every parish choir.
This year, participation by clergy will be especially
encouraged and welcome. Please join us in October!
