Istochnik Choir

Singing is an essen­tial part of Ortho­dox wor­ship. The choir, under the guid­ance of our direc­tor of music, Gor­jana Zekic , and San­ja Rakon­jac have the enor­mous respon­si­bil­i­ty of prepar­ing and singing the respons­es for all ser­vices. Using their skills and tal­ents in litur­gi­cal music, they instruct the choir on ade­quate vocal tech­nique and the under­stand­ing of litur­gi­cal music and text. Mem­bers of the choir are expect­ed to attend rehearsals in order to learn new music and improve the ensem­ble and vocal tech­nique of the choir. Young peo­ple, includ­ing chil­dren, are encour­aged to par­tic­i­pate in offer­ing this spe­cial gift to God. If you are inter­est­ed in join­ing this min­istry, please speak direct­ly to Gorjana.

Istochnik Choir was formed in 2008 by Pro­fes­sor Gor­jana Zekic and a small group of inspired peo­ple deter­mined to share the rich­es of the litur­gi­cal music of the Ortho­dox Church with every­body curi­ous enough to lis­ten.   Very quick­ly, the choir has gained a large base of fans thanks to its excep­tion­al­ly high per­for­mance lev­el and  the care­ful­ly cho­sen reper­toire con­tain­ing mas­ter­pieces of Slavon­ic tra­di­tion­al music, as well as Ser­bian, Russ­ian and Byzan­tine chant.  The Istochnik Choir is often invit­ed by var­i­ous church­es to give concerts.
