NEW YORK – The Greek Orthodox Archdiocese of America is pleased to announce the official reopening of the Archdiocesan School of Byzantine Music (ASBM) and the beginning of online registration for the 2022 new year.

Under the direction of Georgios Theodoridis, Archon Music Instructor of the Greek Orthodox Archdiocese of America, ASBM has been re-imagined in order to train competent cantors to better serve the contemporary musical and liturgical needs of parishes within the context of the divine services.

With new leadership and fresh offerings, ASBM will now provide classes in a virtual setting, which will greatly improve access to students from all over the Archdiocese. Through a refreshed curriculum and an innovative virtual learning program, ASBM is designed to meet the various needs of its students regardless of their prior musical knowledge or experience, while still following the same model as traditional music conservatories in both Greece and the United States.

In anticipation of increased student enrollment, ASBM has also expanded its faculty with expert instructors who hold either a degree or certificate in Byzantine Music. Classes are scheduled to commence on January 3, 2022, and all are welcome to join!

This reopening and launching of a newly redesigned website has been made possible through the generous financial assistance and support of Leadership 100.
