You're welcome to Summer School of the Orthodox Music Festival. It takes place in St Petersburg, the most beautiful city of Russia which combines Russian identity with European style of life. You'll spend one or two weeks visiting concerts of leading Orthodox choirs from Russia and abroad, theme excursions to Saint Petersburg and outskirts, lectures and workshops in Old Russian & Byzantine Chant, Icon painting, Orthodox Liturgics etc. At the end of the course students will have a three-days ship tour to the legendary island of Valaam which is called the Northern Athos.
