You can use this calendar page to set up a new singing event near you, or get in touch with MMC to help you figure out the best way to organize other people in the community to form a local practice group.

    Be with us for a daylong workshop at All Saints Episcopal Church in Norton, VA focusing on racial reconciliation and small parish ministry, bringing together paperless singing from Music That Makes Community and story sharing, a project of The Episcopal Church's Becoming the Beloved Community.

    The workshop is open to all - clergy, parishioners, church musicians, choir members and teachers from any denomination. We'll learn ways to share music that engage singers with varied musical experiences and training, and gain tools for sharing our stories across divisions to understand each other better. The day will include small and large group practice, lunch, and worship.

    ***While you are welcome to RSVP below, you must also REGISTER ONLINE to secure a place at the workshop***

    Registration Fee: $15 per person, $5 for students (can be waived if needed; email Melissa Hays-Smith at the address below).
