The Holy Trinity-St. Sergius Lavra Podvorie Moscow has welcomed PaTRAM’s 2nd Annual Summer Master Class in Russia taking place Thursday, July 7th – Thursday July 14th, 2016! Our Master Class is set up to be one of our most culturally and musically immersive opportunities to-date. Get a feel for the exhilarating spirit of this event by following our daily updates on the PaTRAM website.
As guests of the Podvorie, participants will work with Maestro Vladimir Gorbik in an intensive workshop on Slavonic sacred choral music. Accomplished singers, both male and female, from North America to Australia will join the legendary Holy Trinity-St. Sergius Podvorie choir in the singing of the Vigil and Hierarchal Divine Liturgy of Saints Peter & Paul. On Tuesday July 12th Archbishop Gabriel of Montreal and Canada will celebrate the Hierarchal Liturgy with the Moscow Podvorie’s Archimandrite Dionisi.
Participants will have the opportunity to visit Moscow, New Jerusalem Monastery, and Holy Trinity-St. Sergius Lavra in Sergiev Posad. On July 10th Archbishop Feognost, Rector of the Lavra, will celebrate the Divine Liturgy. The service will be sung antiphonal by the Lavra Choir under the direction of Father Gleb and our combined choir. This is truly a once in a lifetime experience for those of Orthodox faith to deepen their connection to the church and the historical culture within Russia.
