“Music in the Service of Liturgy” is the Theme of St. Vladimir’s Summer Institute

Pravmir.com team | 04 May 2022

Saint Vladimir’s Seminary and the International Society for Orthodox Church Music (ISOCM) are pleased to present, by God’s grace, the Summer Music Institute! Attend in person June 14–18, 2022 on the campus of St. Vladimir’s Seminary in Yonkers, NY (*online audit option also available). 

The Summer Music Institute will bring together church musicians of all skill levels—from beginners to professionals—for hands-on workshops, lectures, and liturgical services. Singers, conductors, and composers will engage in sessions with internationally-recognized faculty. This Institute accommodates both Slavic and Byzantine liturgical musical traditions and will provide skills and resources for adapting four-part music to a small choir, as well as adapting chant for a large choir. The focus is  on:

  • Choosing repertoire that’s right for your services and your choir

  • Maximizing your choir’s talents, whatever its size and skill

The week will culminate with two Divine Liturgies which will integrate Slavic and Byzantine musical traditions and feature large and small choirs.

For the first time since the pandemic, the Institute will offer in person attendance, singing together and in fellowship. We also offer a virtual audit option, with dedicated instruction for off-site participants.

Since you are here…

…we do have a small request. More and more people visit Orthodoxy and the World website. However, resources for editorial are scarce. In comparison to some mass media, we do not make paid subscription. It is our deepest belief that preaching Christ for money is wrong.

Having said that, Pravmir provides daily articles from an autonomous news service, weekly wall newspaper for churches, lectorium, photos, videos, hosting and servers. Editors and translators work together towards one goal: to make our four websites possible - Pravmir.ru, Neinvalid.ru, Matrony.ru and Pravmir.com. Therefore our request for help is understandable.

For example, 5 euros a month is it a lot or little? A cup of coffee? It is not that much for a family budget, but it is a significant amount for Pravmir.

If everyone reading Pravmir could donate 5 euros a month, they would contribute greatly to our ability to spread the word of Christ, Orthodoxy, life's purpose, family and society.
