Byzantine Chant

Music, Classical and opera Free

At 5pm Cappella Romana, in collaboration with the School of Byzantine Music and the Greek Orthodox Archdiocese of Thyateira and Great Britain, presents a mini-symposium and recital of Byzantine chant. Leading liturgical scholars and musicologists from the UK and US lead a short series of interactive presentations aimed to reach a broad spectrum of the public, from early music enthusiasts, to liturgy scholars, to students and practitioners of Byzantine chant.  

At 7.30pm, the Choir of the Archdiocesan School of Byzantine Music directed by Fr Joseph Paliouras presents a recital of Byzantine chant with Cappella Romana.  (The day concludes with an informal reception.)
