26th Annual Russian Orthodox Church Musicians' Conference
Prayerful Sound in the Orthodox Church:
The 26th Annual ROCM Conference will be held from Wednesday, October 4, to Sunday, October 8, 2017,
The purpose of this conference is to bring together choir members, conductors and clergy of all levels of experience to explore the wealth and beauty of Russian Orthodox Divine Services.
This year's conference will focus on liturgical artistry - from the point of view of the various participants in the divine services, be it singer or clergy - reader, deacon, or priest - and the necessary techniques to achieve prayerful singing/chanting of the highest quality.
Throughout the three-day program, an exciting blend of historical, theoretical, and practical considerations will prepare Orthodox singers, both in the choir loft and in the altar, to sing praises to our Lord reverently.
Join us in October!
