Singing Workshops - 2019
MARCH 2019 - USA
Schedule (Places and dates)
In March 2019 we plan to visit churches in the USA, conducting Singing Workshops in different congregations. Also it could be in form of Wednesday Bible class or in any other day. The goal of these seminars is to help congregations learn new songs based on the text of
Scripture and develping better understanding of A`capella congregational singing. We plan to visit Texas, Oklahoma, Tennessee, North Caroline and Alabama (possible Arkansas, Mississippi and Georgia). If your church in one of those state, please, use ths possibility to invite our workshop. Even you live in other state, please, be in touch for future plans.
A few more words about our workshops: These have been held at the Bellevue church of Christ (Nashville, TN), the Northside church of Christ (Temple, TX) and the Memorial Road Church of Christ (Edmond, OK), receiving a great response. As well we made few days Singing Workshop in Cologne, Wiesbaden (Germany) and Tallinn (Estonia). Our main goal is to develop and enrich singing for the full congregation, but we will gladly meet with church choruses, ensembles, and talk with students of Christian colleges and universities.

Here are just a few comments about our work we received:
"I was privileged to sit in a singing with Konstantin at Surfside Beach (SC) church. He is a great teacher, able to engage the audience (i.e., singers, not listeners) in just one session..."
“… Thank you very much for sent me all these material. Really you are amazing with me because you share your work with me with no charge to me. I will start to work in the translation to Spanish of this material. Thanks a lot again and I keep you in my prayers so our God keep you and all yours safe and blessed".
In Christ, Alberto Suarez, Iglesia de Cristo, Tyler, TX
"... I often sing your songs in my private devotions when at home. You should come to Argentina on tour."
Jonathan Hanegan. Missionary at a church of Christ in Buenos Aires, Argentina.
“... We have sung your wonderful song `My God and King` (in Estonian) several times, even in Jerusalem. Last year at Christmas service in our church (Oleviste) we sung `Christmas Song` and `A Son is Given`, which gave rise to ardor of hundreds of people participating in the service. If it is possible, could you please send me the Russian version of `My God and King`. We would like to learn it in Russian as well."
Kersti Kuusk, Oleviste church, Tallinn, Estonia
"... Konstantin, I am so glad my family got to meet you, your wife and the rest of the ensemble in Belton, Texas several years ago. I will let others know about your itenerary. At the congregation where I lead singing, we have learned "O Praise the Lord, My Soul," and "My God and King." Thank you for sharing your God-given gifts with so many of us. Thanks and God bless you all"
Daniel Stovall, Northside church of Christ, Temple, TX
When I first turned to the Lord and believed, the song "Remembrance" came to me. Many congregations started singing it connected with the Lord's Supper. After a few more songs were written, they also were being used during worship services...
