Metropolis of Chicago Church Music Federation

 Welcome to the Federation of Greek Orthodox Church Musicians of the Chicago Metropolis web site.

Our organization is a ministry arm of the Chicago Metropolis of the Greek Orthodox Church.  We represent the church musicians of our Metropolis, whether they are member choirs, individual stewards, or chanters.   Our aim is to sustain the music ministries and traditions of the Orthodox faith, enhancing the spiritual experience for our congregations.  We provide the expertise, support and resources needed to form new choirs and allow established choirs to grow in our parishes. 

The responsibility of the day to day operations of the Federation falls to the board, comprised of 15 individuals from throughout the metropolis, elected by the general assembly which is held each year at our annual conference.  The ultimate governing body is the general assembly, comprised of individual delegates selected by each member parish of the Metropolis.  Our Federation, in turn is a member of the National Forum of Greek Orthodox Musicians along with the other Metropolis Federations in the United States.

Our programs include the annual youth and adult conferences, round table discussions, flash choirs, workshops, church music institutes and participation in a variety of metropolitan events throughout the year.  We have also established a scholarship fund for metropolis members seeking a college degree within a music discipline.  Information about these programs can be found throughout our web site.

For further information about our organization and our programs please access the Chicago Metropolis of the Greek Orthodox Church “Contact Us” page found in this web site under “Metropolis” who will, in turn, put us in contact with you.
