Broaden horizons with 100 years of song

News Stories

A wide-ranging series of interviews will offer insights into hymn writing and congregational song from this autumn through until spring 2022.

As part of The Hymn Society in the US and Canada’s centennial celebration (1922 – 2022), the society has organised a monthly online interview series, “100 Years of Song,” beginning in September 2021. It will feature nine Hymn Society leaders speaking about their own stories and interest in congregational song, the experience of singing communities, and issues that are facing church music makers today.

Each interview will be made available for free as a real-time Zoom webinar, but registration will be required to view the live broadcast. The interviews will also be archived on The Hymn Society website where anyone may view them on demand. All broadcasts will take place at 1:00 pm ET (6:00pm GMT). Registration and more information may be found here.
