I received one of my first real tastes of gregorian chant at a similar workshop in my own home diocese. If you have been wanting to learn more about sacred music, and the church's principal music of the liturgy, I would encourage you to check this event out.Chant Workshop
Juventutem Michigan invites everyone in the Brighton-Flint-Saginaw area and beyond to attend a chant workshop this Saturday, June 28th, 2014, at St. Matthew, Flint. All ages and experience levels are welcome. 40 have registered, so far.
8:30 a.m. - 4:00 p.m. Lunch is included. $18.00 for advance, online registration; $25.00 at the door.
The main presenter will be Joseph Balistreri, the Director of Music for the Archdiocese of Detroit, who has assisted at several of Juventutem Michigan's monthly Mass & dinner gatherings.
The workshop will be in the "field house" at St. Matthew and will run from 8:30 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. on Saturday. The subsidized cost (without Missal) will be $18.00, for those who register in advance.
The workshop will include instruction in both Latin and English Gregorian chant - with the goal of helping both beginners and those with experience to sing the Ordinary Form Mass and the Extraordinary Form (Latin) Mass with beauty and confidence. All ages are welcome.
As able, attendees will be encouraged to assist with sacred music at both 6/28's Vigil (OF) Mass at St. Matthew's and 6/29's Missa Cantata at All Saints, Flint.
