FACILITATOR BIO – Rev. Bill Roberts
The Rev. William Bradley Roberts, DMA, is professor emeritus of church music at Virginia Theological Seminary. Prior to VTS, Bill was an Episcopal church musician for over thirty-five years. He is a composer, primarily of choral music, and author of the book Music and Vital Congregations. He and his husband David Hoover moved to Richmond three years ago, when Bill retired from VTS, in order to be nearer their son Seth Roberts, M.D., and his family. Bill does frequent workshops around the country and conducts the professional choral group Vox Humana, but his favorite area is helping others connect with the Holy Spirit in meditation.
LOCATION – Shrine Mont Conference and Retreat Center
Shrine Mont is a conference and retreat center located in Orkney Springs, a community in western Shenandoah County, Virginia. With accommodations for up to 550 people, we offer groups as well as individuals fun things to do, beautiful places to explore and abundant hospitality. At our heart is the Cathedral Shrine of the Transfiguration, the Cathedral of the Episcopal Diocese of Virginia with public services held at 11:00 on Sundays from early April through mid-November. From workshops, conferences and music festivals, to family reunions and family vacations, parish weekends or an individual retreat, Shrine Mont is a great destination year around!
