Welcome to the
ISOCM website!

The International Society for Orthodox Church Music (ISOCM) was founded to provide researchers, composers, singers, and students with opportunities to meet, share experiences and scores, and to participate in conferences worldwide.

This website enables ISOCM to achieve those goals by helping musicians in the discovery of materials, digital manuscripts, and the exchanging of ideas to enhance the development of musical resources.

The ISOCM continues to look for ways to reinforce the unity of Orthodoxy in tangible ways for those living in modern society.

Membership in ISOCM is open to anyone within any national church or jurisdiction. We hope you'll join us in these efforts!
