Throughout 2018, the Association of Lutheran Church Musicians is inviting musicians to gather in small groups at local congregations for practical workshops on specific topics led by a skilled practitioner. These workshops are for musicians in congregations of all sizes and contexts, each with their own challenges and opportunities. Additional dates, locations, and specific details are being added as they become available.
