Musicianship for Singers Workshop: Eastern Vicariate

  • Immaculate Conception Catholic Church 2150 Cunningham Drive Hampton, VA, 23666 United States (map)

Join the Catholic Diocese of Richmond Office of Worship as we present another series of workshops for singers.

This workshop is for cantors, choir members and ensemble singers, who seek greater understanding of the music they sing and enhanced skills for reading it from the printed page. 3 Sessions will be provided, one in each vicariate or area of Virginia: Western, Central, and Eastern.

This is the final workshop in the series.  This workshop will be in the Eastern Vicariate in Hampton, VA at Immaculate Conception Catholic Church.  If you've missed the others or would like to attend a different session, you can attend this session as well. Please be sure to register.
