Choir Visits Long Island
Six members of the Holy Trinity Monastery and Seminary choir, under the direction of Hieromonk Roman, sang the Vigil and Liturgy at the St. Seraphim Church in Sea Cliff, NY, on the fifth weekend of Great Lent, March 16-17, 2005. Following the Vigil service, and again following the Divine Liturgy, Fr. Serafim Gan thanked the choir for supporting the parish and bringing a little piece of the monastery to Long Island.
Traditionally the combined monastery and seminary choir has traveled to the Synod Cathedral in New York City to perform a concert during Great Lent. This was not possible last year due to the recording of a compact disc. With the blessing of His Eminence, Metropolitan Laurus, the choir again traveled to the New York area, this year assisting a parish rather than giving a concert.
Holy Trinity Seminary wishes to thank Fr. Serafim Gan and the parishioners of the Church of St. Seraphim in Sea Cliff, NY, for the hospitality they extended to our choir and for allowing them the privilage of participating in their divine services.
