All are welcome to attend a one-day MMC Holy Week Planning Retreat for our New York area song leaders on Saturday, February 20. St. Lydia's in Brooklyn has generously offered to host us so we can get together and think creatively about planning for holy week, get inspired to try new things liturgically and practice leading and improvising in a supportive setting with colleagues. We are very pleased that Rev. Donald Schell will be joining us from San Francisco, CA, along with several of our New York area presenters.

This won't be a workshop with presenters and participants, more of a gathering of like-minded practitioners so we can . . .

  • Try out new compositions and works in progress with a critical mass of singers.
  • Brainstorm about songs, hymns, readings, processions, and other liturgical elements.
  • Think about how to integrate instruments into various liturgical moments.
  • Share ideas and problem solve.

We won't be charging tuition, we'll just ask everyone to pitch in $15 for a nice lunch we can share. Please RSVP below so we know how many to expect, and feel free to invite friends you think might be interested!
