A Gift From Konevets Quartet

When Konevets Quartet visited Hellenic Church of Annunciation to perform a concert there, Fr. Vlad and Matushka Jeanne were honored to host them at the rectory. Knowing that our church has absolutely beautiful acoustics, Fr. Vlad could not pass an opportunity to ask the quartet to sing for us. They sang Our Father by Tchaikovsky, if you close your eyes it’s hard to imagine that there were only four men signing. Enjoy the video bellow!

Making Music with Kids: An Orthodox Experience (Level 1)

Orthodox MusicOn Saturday, November 16th, 2013, Saints Peter and Paul Orthodox Church is inviting you to a children’s Liturgical Music Workshop.

Worship in the Orthodox Church is sung for a reason – it raises us from the everyday world of conversation and brings us into the presence of God. And when we’re in God’s house we offer our praise and songs together as a community before the Lord.

The Level 1 workshop is designed for children with no musical experience who want to learn about singing in a choir and reading in church. The instructor will provide basic music reading concepts will introduce prayers set to music for the children to learn. Parents are also encouraged to participate with their children.

Lunch will be provided, along with sheet music to bring home and to your parish afterwards! All instruction will be in English.

Registration fees: $20 first child, $15/each add’l child, $10/adult (includes workshop materials and breakfast/lunch) – Please make checks payable to the “Diocese of New York and New Jersey”. Click here for the registration form and more information.
