The Gregorian Institute of Canada, UBC, Vancouver

The Gregorian Institute of Canada held this year's annual conference at Vancouver's UBC campus.  Sessions were held at St Mark's College, Carey Hall, and the keynote address was given by Dr. William Mahrt, Professor Emeritus of Music at Stanford University.  These photos were taken during Dr. Mahrt's address given in the School of Music.  It is encouraging to see so many people, young and old, interested in Gregorian Chant.  Some came to attend workshops on singing, scholars participated in giving papers, and some sessions were held jointly, including participants from the Early Music Workshop given annually at UBC.
