June 20-24: Pan-Orthodox Music Symposium at St Mary’s Cathedral
upcoming pan-Orthodox music symposium at St Mary's Cathedral,
Minneapolis, will include public events on Thursday and Friday
evenings, and on Saturday and Sunday, including two liturgical services
that will feature the singing and chanting of over 100 voices in three
separate choirs. All of the chanting and singing will be in English,
using Byzantine and Romanian chants, Georgian and Russian hymn
settings, and a number of new musical settings composed here in
America, in English. The tapestry of hymns will be enriched further by
having local Orthodox clergy and faithful join us to experience the
rich musical traditions from around the world. Metropolitan Tikhon of
the Orthodox Church in America will be here for both Saturday’s vigil
and Sunday’s liturgy.
