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 where
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 examining,
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!
