Summer Sacred Music Workshop II

Friday and Saturday, July 22-23, 2016
The Basilica of Sts. Peter and Paul
Chattanooga, Tennessee

Building on the success of the 2015 workshop held at Our Lady of the Mountains Church in Jasper, Ga, Southeastern Sacred Music invites you to join them again for the 2016 workshop in Chattanooga, Tennessee.

Whether you are a singer, a choir director, priest, deacon, or seminarian, this one-and-a-half day workshop is an ideal opportunity for you to:

  • learn to read and sing Gregorian chant (or further develop your chanting ability), under the direction of Dr. Jennifer Donelson,
  • gain the skills and tools to immediately improve your parish music program, guided by the wisdom of the Second Vatican Council, and
  • explore repertory options (many of them available at no cost) for the Ordinary Form of the Mass, no matter what your parish or choir situation, and
  • study special topics including sacred polyphony, use of the organ, restoring Catholic tradition to the funeral Mass, and a session for clergy with Father David Carter, and
  • participate in a solemn Vespers and solemn sung Mass, and hear the Basilica’s majestic pipe organ in recital.

The workshop begins on Friday, July 22, at 1:30 p.m. and concludes with Mass at 4 p.m. Saturday, July 23. The program includes chant sessions, rehearsals for Mass, a chanted Vespers service, and an organ recital.

Dormitory rooms at the nearby University of Tennessee at Chattanooga campus will be available, as will lodging in hotels.

Workshop cost will be $60 for non-students through June 30; afterward the cost rises to $75. This includes all materials, access to the full program, lunch, and snacks. Get all the details at the Southeastern Sacred Music Website.

The fee for full-time students, including seminarians, will be $25.
