Jordanville, NY: PaTRAM to host First Annual Young Singers’
Conference on Labor Day Weekend
Patriarch Tikhon Russian-American Musical (PaTRAM) Institute
announces its first Young Singers’ Conference. It is scheduled for
Labor Day Weekend, September 2-5, in Jordanville, NY. The purpose of
this annual conference is to offer young Orthodox singers and
musicians, ages 15-40, an opportunity to strengthen their musical
skills and deepen their connection to the Orthodox Faith.
Dr. Peter Jermihov, Katya Lukianova, Dr. Irina Riazanova, and Priest
Ephraim Willmarth will lead the participants in a series of
interactive classes and rehearsals that emphasize prayerful and
musical singing. Archimandrite Luke (Murianka; abbot of Holy Trinity
Monastery in Jordanville) has graciously allowed the participants to
sing at two Hierarchical Divine Liturgies, celebrated respectively
by Archbishop Gabriel of Montreal & Canada and Bishop Nicholas of
Manhattan, thus giving the singers a chance to experience worship in
a pious, monastery setting.
In order to ensure that all young and talented Orthodox singers
receive the opportunity for growth, PaTRAM will offer a limited
number of full-tuition scholarships.
