Ukase to the Ruling Bishops of the North American Dioceses of the Russian Church Abroad
The archpastors of the North American dioceses of the Russian Orthodox Church Outside of Russia are hereby notified that the Synodal Liturgical Music Advisory Board is organizing a conference on the topic: "The Foundations of Musical Mastery of the Church Choir and Its Director." The conference will be held at SS Peter and Paul Church in Santa Rosa, CA, from October 8-12, 2014.
It is recommended that the information from the following website be widely disseminated: www.rocmconference.com
It is desirable to have at least one participant from each parish of the North American dioceses of the Russian Church Abroad participate.
I trust that every participant of the forthcoming event will return with renewed strength and will bring benefit to his parish.
Metropolitan of Eastern America and New York,
First Hierarch of the Russian Orthodox Church Outside of Russia.
