My name is Rodney and I also go by my Christian name ιωάννης (John). I am a member of St. George Greek Orthodox Church in Shererville, IN. Since I am a beginner, I chant ison and some easy melodies with the chanters. I can read Greek, so it keeps me from getting lost during the services. I’ve taken Byzantine Beginnings 101-103,but I would like to learn how to build services so that I’m not disoriented and relying on others during the services. I previously sang in an OCA choir, and prior to that I was a percussionist in the Marine Corp Band.
