2023 Summer Webinar Series

ALCM webinars are live one-hour online workshop sessions on a variety of topics. During the webinar, the presenter’s live video and handouts can be viewed on the computer screen. Registrants can communicate if they like by typing into a chat box which is also seen on the screen. Typically, ALCM webinars consist of a 45-minute presentation and 10 minutes of questions. Registrants receive an emailed link and instructions to attend the webinar an hour or more prior to the workshop. After the workshop, registrants receive a link to the recorded webinar as well as any handouts used during the presentation.

ALCM’s 2023 Summer Webinar series may be purchased for $25 for ALCM members and $39 for non-members. Registration at any time during 2023 will give access to the upcoming webinars in that series as well as recordings of the webinars which are completed.

All webinars are on Fridays at 2:00 pm Eastern.

Treasures All Around:
Hymns Reimagined for Native Ears

Omaldo Perez

Director for Music and Worship
Grace Lutheran Church | La Grange, IL

In this workshop, we will explore the theological and practical considerations generated by one question: What would our beloved hymns sound like had they been written in the last fifty years, and drew their vitality, not from the well-documented and great historical models from our Western practice, but from today’s musical vernacular?
