The Church Music Institute, in cooperation with Brite, is launching the first in an intended series of courses, “Music in Christian Worship” June 17-21, 2013, at Brite Divinity School in Fort Worth, taught by the Rev. Dr. Paul Westermeyer of Luther Seminary, for 3 hours graduate credit or for audit.  Knowing that few clergy or church musicians have access to such coursework, this is a wonderful opportunity to spend a week with a respected scholar in church music, made possible by discounted Brite tuition and CMI scholarship assistance.  More information and all materials are available here.
