Upcoming Liturgical Music Conference: Oct 19-21, 2021
Upcoming Liturgical Music Conference 2021

Save the Date: October 19, 20, 21, 2021! Last year, the Convocation of the West planned to have a conference on Music. A little thing called the Pandemic delayed it by a year. But now, it is going forward. The Conference will be in the Seattle area. Our host church is Saint Barnabas, Shoreline, WA and our guest presenters will be Mr. Mark Williams and his wife, Mrs. Tina Zenker Williams.

 

Mark Williams serves as the chair of the ACNA Music Task Force and oversees the music resources website for the province (acnamusic.org).  Mark is also the editor for the newly proposed hymnal for the ACNA.  He has served as the organist/choirmaster at Christ Church Anglican (1733) in Savannah, GA for the past 24 years. Over his 40-year career as a pastoral church musician he has served in churches in Seattle, Houston, Orlando, and Savannah.  Mark is also a clinician and composer contributing several new hymns as well as service music to the proposed ACNA hymnal.
Mark’s lovely wife, Tina Zenker Williams, has her masters in vocal performance having studied at Peabody Conservatory. She has run a large voice studio out of the church for the past 20+ years and serves as Christ Church’s cantor.  Tina grew up in the cathedral choral tradition at St. Luke’s Cathedral in Orlando and is a wonderful educator.

Please remember, this conference is NOT just for clergy but for ALL those in your church that are involved in the music for the church.

This promises to be an excellent Conference. We hope to see you all there!

Cost: Registration $175.00; Meals (6 coffee breaks, 3 lunches, 3 social hours and 3 Dinners) will be provided. 
A block of hotel rooms is will be held until September 20th at a reduced rate of $105.00 per night for a double queen room.

This promises to be an excellent Conference. We hope to see you all there!
