On April 27, from 1:30 – 3:30pm, Saint Mary’s Church in Wappingers Falls will be hosting a workshop entitled “Introduction to Chant: Spirituality, History, and the Basics of Reading.” The workshop is sponsored by the Office of Liturgy and will be led by Dr. Jennifer Donelson, D.M.A. Dr. Donelson is a nationally recognized expert in Gregorian Chant, and the Director and Associate Professor of Sacred Music at Saint Joseph’s Seminary. The cost of the workshop is $15.
This presentation is a wonderful opportunity for parish musicians and others in the northern counties of the Archdiocese to learn more about the Church’s beautiful history and practice of sung prayer. Traditional chants in both English and Latin will be introduced. Participants may register for this workshop at the Liturgy Office website.
