Welcome to the Summer School of Liturgical Music (SSLM). Since 1991, we have worked to improve the quality of singing in churches of the Russian Orthodox tradition, across ecclesiastical jurisdictions both in and beyond the United States. The full course of study at SSLM leads to certification as choir conductors and/or precentors, fully accredited by the State University of New York. At the same time, we gladly welcome those who wish to enhance their knowledge of the unique Russian Orthodox musical tradition without pursuing full certification. In 2015, we are proud to announce the launch of a Continuing Education program, offering courses in specialized topics outside the standard SSLM curriculum.
