Hi my Name is Natalia Carnazzo. I attend St. Elias Melkite Church San Jose CA. I was raised in the Orthodox tradition and have heard the hymns of the church growing up. I started chanting when I was 13(I am now 16). Since Covid my sister and I have been head chanters at our church for 2 years. I have a general understanding of services and Typikon but not enough to feel confident. I am really excited to take this class. I love chanting, and studying chant. I look forward to learning more about the Typikon.
