Gregorian Chant Workshop
CHICAGO, IL Are you a member of a parish choir which sings Gregorian Chant? Are you a choir director who is starting or building a Gregorian Chant schola? Are you familiar with the basics of Chant, but wish to master the Gregorian art? Then this Chant workshop on the weekend of January 9-11 is for you.
Under the direction of Canon Wulfran Lebocq, participants will learn the fine points of the classic method of Solemses as taught by the late Dom Joseph Gajard and will sing each day at Holy Mass and Benediction of the Blessed Sacrament. On the final day, participants will sing at a Solemn Pontifical High Mass celebrated by His Excellency, the Most Reverend Joseph N. Perry, Auxiliary Bishop of Chicago.
