Saint Katherine is proud to have three music ministries dedicated to the preservation of Byzantine Music: Psalters, Adult Choir, and Youth Choir.
Spyridon Perivolaris, Protopsalti
Spiros received his Diploma in Byzantine Music in 2020 with honors and cum laude from the School of Byzantine and Traditional Music of the Sacred Archdiocese of Athens of the Church of Greece. He started his ministry at Saint Katherine on July 23, 2023.
John Slanta, Director
Choir usually sings every other Sunday, from mid-September through the end of May. Choir practices are held Sunday mornings at 9:00am the days the choir sings, with additional practices before Christmas and on Lazarus Saturday prior to Pascha. Please contact John Slanta, Choir Director at email@example.com or 703-307-0142, with your interest in singing with the choir.
Music class will be held every Sunday that Catechetical (Sunday) School is in session.
TEXT AND MUSIC FOR THE ENGLISH VERSION OF CHRISTOS ANESTI
On March 21, 2012, His Eminence Archbishop Demetrios, on behalf of all the members of our Holy Eparchial Synod, approved and distributed copies of the standard text and music for the English version of Christos Anesti to all the parishes of our Archdiocese. The National Forum of Greek Orthodox Church Musicians is so pleased we have reached this milestone of now being able to sing this significant and beautiful hymn of our faith in English as one, wherever we travel and whenever we gather from different parishes, just as we have been able to do with the Greek version.
