Music that Makes Community is excited to return to Lutheran School of Theology at Chicago for an intensive workshop from October 10-12, 2019. Conie Borchardt, Paul Vasile, and Scott Weidler will lead worship, plenaries, small groups, and reflection to help you add the valuable tool of paperless leading to your community’s singing practice. Learn practical skills and diverse repertoire, and explore how paperless music can strengthen and enrich worship and community life.
The event begins at 2 p.m. on Thursday and ends at 4 p.m. on Saturday. The schedule offers optional evening activities to support the participation of local commuters, including a Community SING on Thursday evening and Dances of Universal Peace on Friday evening.
