Summer School of Liturgical Music - Register for 2017 Session
SUMMER SCHOOL OF LITURGICAL MUSIC
SUMMER 2017 SESSION
JULY 9 - JULY 22
The courses are designed in close collaboration between faculty members, and are interrelated so that information learned in each class is directly relevant to knowledge acquired in the others. Attentive students are therefore guaranteed a comprehensive understanding of the living Russian Orthodox Liturgical Music tradition, and the skills needed to conduct, sing and read beautifully in their own church choir lofts.
The full course of study consists of three summer sessions, at the end of which graduates are certified as Church Choir Directors and/or Readers.
Many of our students do not seek certification, but rather attend SSLM in order to enrich their knowledge of Russian Orthodox Music during one or more summers. In these cases, the course load — full or partial — may be agreed upon in consultation with the school administration on a yearly basis. Participation in the school choir is mandatory for all students.
