On Sunday, July 31st, Georgios Theodoridis, Director of the Archdiocesan School of Byzantine Music, offered a brief seminar at St. Nicholas Greek Orthodox Church in Wilmington, North Carolina.
Mr. Theodoridis spoke about the Psaltic Art and the educational program of the Archdiocesan School of Byzantine Music. He provided information about the mission and vision of the school as well as future projects and initiatives.
During the seminar, Mr. Theodoridis recognized six parishioners of St. Nicholas who are current students of the ASBM. These six students serve their parish’s Music Ministry as choir members.
The Music Ministry at St. Nicholas Greek Orthodox Church is led by Michael Rallis, also a current student of the ASBM, who received his Certificate in Byzantine Chant from Holy Cross Greek Orthodox School of Theology in May 2022.
Mr. Theodoridis also accepted the invitation to conduct the local choir during the divine services that day. This provided an additional opportunity for the students to apply what they have learned in the context of a live service.
The Archdiocesan School of Byzantine Music would like to thank Fr. Steven Klund, Proistamenos of St. Nicholas Greek Orthodox Church in Wilmington, North Carolina, for his warm hospitality and collaboration.
