Byzantine Music is a whole other language, if you are interested in the history and music of the Byzantine chant, please contact Fr. John for the next session.

This year we are creating a musical instrument program in which our faithful can learn how to play the bouzouki, guitar and singing. We have a wonderful opportunity this year, George Bouras is back with us and is very enthusiastic to work with us all again. If you are interested please contact Fr. John.
