ECENTLY, I have been working hard with Bridget Scott, a fellow music director in the Archdiocese of Atlanta, organizing and preparing for the Summer Sacred Music Workshop. This workshop is a collaborative effort between parishes in response to the Archdiocesan pastoral plan. The workshop will be held at Our Lady of the Mountains Roman Catholic Church in Jasper, Georgia, on August 15, Solemnity of the Assumption of the Blessed Virgin.
This is an opportunity for musicians in the Southeast area (Georgia, Alabama, Tennessee, South Carolina and North Carolina) to learn about the Ancient Gregorian Chant and Classical Polyphony. Fr. David Carter, JCL, will be giving the keynote entitled, Re-discovery of the Church’s Sacred Tradition: II Kings 22. Three accomplished musicians joined us as faculty members recently: Maria Rist, Jonathan Eason and Noel Jones. There will also be a book sale at the workshop. The Closing Mass, Sung Mass in the Ordinary Form of the Roman Rite, will be celebrated at 4:00pm at the parish by the pastor, Fr. Charles Byrd. All are welcome to join us for the Liturgy. More information can be found on our webpage.
The deadline of registration for the workshop is August 1. So, REGISTER NOW!
