August 27 Workshop, East Lansing

You know what's really great? When a parish contacts you about doing a workshop and everyone there is so excited about it that you can sense it in the emails and phonecalls, so much so that they take care of all details from schedule to food to promotion - even developing a website! Here you can also register - and you should.

This is what what happened to me and to Arlene Oost-Zinner. We'll be conducting a workshop on English chant and reading square notes at a parish that is ready to move forward with its music program, in cooperation with all the parishes in the community. The parish is St Thomas Aquinas in East Lansing, and the date is August 27, 2011.

This is a one-day crash course that will teach all the new Missal chants, plus get the local choirs ready to sing the Mass with the Simple English Propers. One person who has already registered said she couldn't sleep last night because she was so excited! That's pretty neat.

The Catholic music world seems very happy these days, doesn't it?

Anyway, we hope to see you there. Good things are ahead in the future.
