music seminar

The first music seminar I attended last weekend at Blue Cloud Abbey was led by an experienced musician and organist, Rev. Richard Collman, who is also an oblate of St. Benedict, associated with Blue Cloud Abbey. He shared old and new music available for church musicians by passing around various collections as well as individual works. By playing excerpts he made it come alive. Below are some photos.

Fr. Chris Uehlein played portions of his newly published sonatina

Concert pianist, Eugene Gienger, played samples of various arrangements

even the Sisters of Saint Benedict seemed pleased
