Winter Chant Workshop: Introduction to Chant

Monday January 20 - Friday January 24, 2025

Saint Meinrad Archabbey

This workshop is designed for directors of liturgical music and singers in parish liturgies who are new to chant. Classroom sessions will introduce participants to the basics of chant, while daily rehearsals will offer an opportunity to sing and interpretate this type of sacred music. Through the week, attendees will have the opportunity to participate in the liturgies of Saint Meinrad’s Benedictine monastic community, as well as to form and sing in a chant schola. Presenters Br. John Glasenapp and Br. Joel Blaize will be joined by Dr. Alison Altstatt, Associate Professor of Musicology/Music History at the University of Northern Iowa.
