Registration Opens for Summer Sacred Music Institute, July 10-14

The Department of Sacred Music is thrilled to announce the summer Sacred Music Institute of 2019, "Sacraments and Song," at the Antiochian Village in Ligonier, Pennsylvania. Sessions will begin on the evening of July 10, 2019 and end with Hierarchical Divine Liturgy on July 14.

This theme offers us the exciting opportunity to learn and practice music for many of the different sacraments offered by our church, including weddings, baptisms, ordinations and Holy Unction. Of course we will also offer our usual sessions on Byzantine chant, conducting, vocal technique and music theory, as well as plenty of time for worship, reflection and building relationships.

To register, please visit the Antiochian Village registration page​ by June 28. The all-inclusive price (lodging, parking, meals, snacks, course instruction and materials) is $656 per person for a single room, $524 for a double, and $496 for a triple.
