WILBER (SNR) – A chant workshop will be held Saturday, Aug. 23 at St. Wenceslaus Church in Wilber.
The workshop, for cantors, music directors, organists and pianists, will be led by certified music educator Jessica Happold. Happold is the adult choir director at the Cathedral of the Risen Christ in Lincoln, as well as vocal music instructor at Cathedral School.
After Mass celebrated at 8 a.m., the workshop begins with, “Why Chant, Why now? Answering some common questions.” Further presentations consider practical considerations and the use of Antiphons.
The event concludes at noon with lunch.
Happold conducted a pilot of this workshop at St. Mary Parish in Nebraska City earlier this year.
