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.
"If you are going to serve the Lord, be prepared for times when you will be put to the test. Be sincere and determined. Keep calm when trouble comes. Stay with the Lord; never abandon Him and you will be prosperous at the end of your days. Accept whatever happens to you. Even if you suffer humiliation, be patient. Gold is tested by fire and human character is tested in the furnace of humiliation. Trust the Lord and He will help you. Walk straight in His ways and put your hope in Him. " Sir 2:1-6

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).
