John Michael Boyer on Ancient Faith Radio

A heads up that John Michael Boyer, Protopsaltis for the Greek Orthodox Metropolis of San Francisco and frequent collaborator with Cappella Romana, is interviewed on Ancient Faith Radio, promoting his weeklong Byzantine chant workshop, offered at St. Nicholas Ranch through the St. John Koukouzelis Institute for Liturgical Arts. Direct link to the interview here.

It sounds great; the structure of the days, as described, sounds like it really focuses the participant (and, while of course with adults, a much more specific curriculum, and a far shorter timespan, it also sounds like somewhat like how I envision time being organized at a choir school), and the faculty sounds like a wonderful gathering of people with whom it would be a valuable experience to study all at once. I will be in Greece (don’t everybody shed tears for me at once), but perhaps it’s something I can do next year.

I’ll also note that the costs (exclusive of transportation to California) are shockingly minimal; $575 for a week of this kind of instruction, including lodging and food, is really nothing.

Anyway, check it out — and if you go, let me know. I’d love to hear about it.
