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.
