[STOTS Communications, South Canaan, PA] The St. Tikhon’s community is pleased to be hosting once again a wonderful opportunity organized by PaTRAM for church musicians, The Memorial Day Conductors’ & Singers’ Workshop, on Friday, May 26 through Monday, May 29, 2017.
This year’s program includes workshops for both conductors and singers, working independently and in tandem with Maestro Peter Jermihov and other faculty, and culminating in singing at the hierarchical services celebrated by His Beatitude Metropolitan Tikhon, His Eminence Archbishop Michael, Rector of St. Tikhon’s Seminary, and other hierarchs and clergy who will be visiting for the seminary’s graduation ceremonies and the weekend’s other traditional liturgical festivities.
“PaTRAM is engaged in an ongoing effort to build up the quality of liturgical music in the Orthodox Church in the United States and Canada,” Benedict Sheehan, Director of Music at St. Tikhon’s Seminary and a workshop leader at the PaTRAM event, said. “In workshops like this one, they give Orthodox musicians of varying levels of experience the opportunity to work with first-class educators and to do so in a spiritual atmosphere.”
In addition to enjoying a very full weekend of instruction and singing, participants in the workshop will receive complimentary tickets to St. Tikhon’s memorial concert featuring Tchaikovsky, of which PaTRAM is a major sponsor.
