Summer School of Liturgical Music at Holy Trinity Seminary to hold
Sessions July 10-23
Summer School of Liturgical Music at Holy Trinity Seminary was
founded in 1992 with the blessing of the Rector of the Seminary, the
late Metropolitan Laurus. SSLM was originally established as part of
a broader effort by the Synodal Liturgical Music Advisory Board of
the Russian Orthodox Church Outside of Russia to raise the quality
of church singing within ROCOR parishes across the Russian Diaspora.
Almost immediately, the School expanded its mandate to welcome
students from across all Orthodox jurisdictions, from all corners of
the globe, as well as non-Orthodox students who wish to acquaint
themselves with the unique tradition of Russian Orthodox liturgical
The three two-week summer sessions take place in the spiritually
enlightening setting of the Holy Trinity Monastery in Jordanville,
NY, where the students have the opportunity to attend services and
to interact with the monastic brotherhood, whose support for the
School has historically been deeply appreciated. This year’s
sessions will take place from July 10-23.
SSLM is part of the Holy Trinity Seminary, and as such is accredited
by the Board of Regents of the State University of New York. Classes
take place in the Seminary’s classrooms, and some of the male
students are housed in the Seminary dormitory.
