About the symposium

"Orthodox Liturgical Music Composition:  Fostering a Living Creative Tradition in the English-Speaking World"

The 2014 Pan-Orthodox Liturgical Music Symposium is a four-day event specifically dedicated to singers, conductors, and composers of all Orthodox traditions.  The symposium will encourage and explore the current state of Orthodox choral composition in the English-speaking world today.  The event will include opportunities for participants to sing new Orthodox choral music, to participate in discussions, to hear presentations, and to attend a very special concert featuring newly-composed Orthodox choral works performed by the East/West Festival Choir.  

Downtown Cincinnati along the picturesque Ohio River

The Symposium will take place on the campus of Northern Kentucky Unviersity located just five minutes from downtown Cincinnati.

The symposium will conclude with an All-Night Vigil and Divine Liturgy at the newly-constructed St. George Orthodox Church in Loveland, Ohio.  The services will feature liturgical music composed mostly in the last 20 years and will be conducted by Irene Riazanova.
