SVS/ISOCM Summer Music Institute

Music in the Service of Liturgy


Saint Vladimir's Seminary (SVS) and the International Society for Orthodox Church Music (ISOCM) are pleased to present, by God's grace, the Summer Music Institute! Join us in person June 14–18, 2022 on the campus of St. Vladimir's Seminary in Yonkers, NY (*online audit option also available).

The Summer Music Institute is bringing together church musicians of all skill levels—from beginners to professionals—for hands-on workshops, lectures, and liturgical services. Singers, conductors, and composers will engage in sessions with internationally-recognized faculty. This Institute accommodates both Slavic and Byzantine liturgical musical traditions and will provide skills and resources for adapting four-part music to a small choir, as well as adapting chant for a large choir. You'll focus on:

  • Choosing repertoire that’s right for your services and your choir

  • Maximizing your choir’s talents, whatever its size and skill


The week will culminate with two Divine Liturgies which will integrate Slavic and Byzantine musical traditions and feature large and small choirs.

We will be in person, singing together and in fellowship. We also offer a virtual audit option, with dedicated instruction for off-site participants.
