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.

The strain of anti-intellectualism has been a constant thread winding its way through our political and cultural life, nurtured by the false notion that democracy means that “my ignorance is just as good as your knowledge.""

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).
