Founded in 1991, Cappella Romana "is a professional
vocal ensemble dedicated to combining passion with scholarship in its exploration
of the musical traditions of the Christian East and West, primarily music of the
Orthodox Church." Expanding from its local base of support in the Pacific Northwest,
the ensemble now reaches a national and international audience with its concerts
and recordings of Orthodox sacred music - in English and in original languages -
that both edify the Orthodox faithful and reach out to the world as musical beacons
of Orthodoxy. The ensemble has performed to international acclaim at major venues in
the US, Canada, and Europe.

teaching models of liturgical singing in English in the form of CDs
and printed music. The three models involve three different musical

Provided funding for institutional development.
