Membership in ISOCM is open to anyone who is actively concerned with the music of the Orthodox Church. Your membership will support the Society and its mission to promote Eastern Christian chant in all of its various forms, research, and composition.
New members will receive a free copy of one of our Conference Proceedings, and all members get preferential rates for attending conferences and symposia. Only members can vote in the annual meetings of the Society, for example electing the chairperson and members of the Board.
Members are sent news about the activities of the Society by e-mail about once or twice a year.
For more frequent updates, you can subscribe to our newsletter at the bottom of the page and follow us on Facebook.
