Sydney School of Byzantine Music
The Sydney School of Byzantine Music was established in 2002 by the late Mr Basil Stavropoulos, chanter of the Greek Orthodox Parish of the Transfiguration in Earlwood. Mr Stavropoulos taught weekly classes of students and trained them in the art of Byzantine Chant. These classes played a pivotal role in the revival of Byzantine Chant among the younger generation of Orthodox Christians and today many of the graduates of the school have taken up positions as chanters, teachers and choir members at various churches and groups around Sydney. Today, the school continues to run under the direction of the Greek Orthodox Christian Society. Below are some more details about the school:
