      Editorial Comment from Peter Fekula, Member of the Liturgical
      Commission

      I have been involved in these conferences from their inception in
      Glen Cove, NY in 1987, so I'm not impartial, I suppose. But there
      are a number of contributors to this list who have either attended,
      presented lectures, conducted workshops, or conducted the choir at
      previous conferences and who, I'd venture, would say the conferences
      are valuable and beneficial to those who attend, and by extension,
      to their home parishes.

      This year's conference, dedicated to the "St. Petersburg School" of
      Russian Liturgical composition will features lectures and workshops
      by leading church musicians from the US and Russia, festive
      hierarchal services, and an opportunity to interact with, learn
      from, and exchange war stories with fellow church musicians from
      around the US and Canada.

      Historically, these conferences have proven valuable for people at
      all levels of proficiency -- for those who are experienced singers
      already, as well as those who are not, but wish to gain some
      experience.
