The HTOS choir, with the blessing of Archmandrite Luke, Rector, will travel to St John the Baptist Cathedral, Washington, DC, on the weekend of March 3-4, 2018. Mitred Archpriest Victor Patapov, cathedral rector, has invited our choir to join the cathedral’s choir at the bi-lingual All Night Vigil on Saturday evening and invited our seminary choir to sing the responses at the Divine Liturgy of St. Basil on the second Sunday of the Great Fast commemorating our Father among the Saints, Gregory of Palamas, Archbishop of Thessalonica. Deacon Nicholas Kotar, seminary choir director and lecturer in Church Music, will lead the Seminary Choir at both the English and Church Slavonic Divine Liturgies. Accompanying the choir will be Deacon Michael Pavuk, Director of Development, who will assist the cathedral clergy at the services and speak to the faithful on behalf of the Seminary.
