Cantate Domino canticum. . .uh, antiquum?

In light of the previous post, this notice I received the other day may be of increased interest to choir directors in the western U.S.:

For anyone interested in learning the basics of Gregorian Chant, the Choir of Madonna del Sasso Parish in Salinas, California, will hold a Gregorian Chant workshop on September 14-15. After attending the sessions from 6-9 pm on Friday, September 14, and 9 am to 4 pm on Saturday, September 15, participants will sing at the Parish 4 pm Vigil Mass.

Participants will learn the basics of chant under the direction of Kathy Reinheimer, the Director of the Regina Pacis Cantorum choir and Sursum Corda schola, which sing throughout the Diocese of Reno and the Sierra foothills of California. Registration is $25 (clergy and religious, free!).
