The Synodal Church Music Committee announces the 23rd conference at SS Peter and Paul Church in Santa Rosa

The title of the conference is Fundamentals of Musicianship for the Church Choir and its Conductor, and will focus “on increasing the skill, knowledge, artistic sensitivity, and prayerful execution of church singing, as well as the role of the conductor in building fluidity of harmony, nuances, and choral blend.”

The Russian Orthodox Church Musicians’ Conference is an international event that brings together choir members and conductors to explore the wealth and beauty of Russian Orthodox Church music. Participants gain practical and theoretical knowledge and experience through lectures, workshops and rehearsals, which culminate in festive services.

An “early bird” discount is available through July 1st ($50 off full registration, double occupancy).

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 -,, and 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.

Dear Friends,

Our website exists owing to your generous assistance, thanks to the funds donated by our beloved readers.

Please assist us in the continuation of our work.
