Byzantine Music Workshop, hosted by St. George, Pittsburgh, PA
« on: February 27, 2009, 10:58:35 AM »
St. George in Pittsburgh (AOA) is hosting a one-day Byzantine Music workshop on Saturday, March 21. 

From their own description:
"This will be a Byzantine Chant Workshop focusing on teaching the basics of Byzantine Chant, as well as how to read the Byzantine Notation. We will begin with a Divine Liturgy at 9am (all in Byzantine Chant) followed by light snacks and the beginning workshops at 10:30am. All the talks will be done in English, and there will also be talks on the History of Byzantine Chant and Liturgical topics of importance. A Lenten lunch will be provided.

To cover the cost of the snacks and lunch, the workshops will cost $10 total."

To RSVP, PM me and I'll send you the guy's email address.
"O Cross of Christ, all-holy, thrice-blessed, and life-giving, instrument of the mystical rites of Zion, the holy Altar for the service of our Great Archpriest, the blessing - the weapon - the strength of priests, our pride, our consolation, the light in our hearts, our mind, and our steps"
Met. Meletios of Nikopolis & Preveza, from his ordination.

Dang, I wish we could have one of those in the midwest.  If any of you Chant Experts want to come out to Omaha or know someone who would be willing, PM me and let me know.  I can't impart what I have learned in a cogent way and very few people actually want to learn the byzantine notation (which I do want to do).   
Hey, I don't hand out 9.5s to just anyone!  ;D
