    The UF Sacred Music Workshop is a two-day event designed for church and synagogue musicians (organists, choir directors, handbell choir directors, and singers). 

    This year’s workshop will begin on the evening of Sunday, May 5 with an organ recital by a rising artist in downtown Gainesville. Attendees will have the opportunity to attend workshop sessions on such topics as hymn playing, service playing, anthem accompaniment, MIDI technology, choral conducting, and vocal health. A musical presentation on the evening of Monday May 6 will be held in the University Auditorium. The event will also include a choral reading session of octavos supplied by leading sacred music publishers. 

    The workshop will conclude on the afternoon of Tuesday, May 7, with an organ masterclass led by UF organ professor, Laura Ellis. Musicians from all faith backgrounds are welcomed!
