It will primarily include easily accessible music—both published and public domain—with the hope of expanding your repertoire of possibilities for this fall. Join us on October 17 for exciting new ideas for Ordinary Time. (Music for Advent, Christmas, and Epiphany will be featured in a follow up session on November 7. More information to follow!)
Registration closes at 12:00 noon (CDT) on Friday, October 16.
