From Thursday evening, February 20 through Sunday February 23, St. Luke Orthodox Church in Garden Grove, CA will host the 2014 West Coast Sacred Music Institute. Twice each year, the Department of Sacred Music offers the Institute for church musicians to learn new pieces, and to sharpen their skills. The theme of the 2014 Institute is “The Passion of Christ: A Journey Through Holy Week.”
The Institute is for parish musicians who desire to:
• “raise the bar” on choir competency
• learn new pieces of music
• connect with other Orthodox musicians
• experience full immersion in worship, hymnography, theology, and spirituality
• give the same amount of nurture and devotion to the “career” of church music as any career
• learn a better way to approach Great Lent and Holy Week.
