Conferences and Events CPH Music Will Be at in 2017

CPH Music is getting ready for our conferences this year. Check out the list of events we’ll be at in 2017 and see if we’ll be at one near you!

We Want to Meet You!

There’s nothing as exciting to us as meeting someone who has been touched by a piece we’ve worked on. It’s fulfilling to hear about your favorite pieces, a special moment during a worship service, or a learning achievement related to one of our products. Come say hi to us and tell us how you’ve used music from CPH at your church!

We also value these opportunities to meet our composers in person and to hear what new works musicians are putting out. If you’re a composer, whether you’ve been published by CPH or not, we would love to meet you, hear what you’re working on, and just talk music with you.

Where We’ll Be in 2017

Will you be at any of these events this year? Come find our booth and browse our music. You’ll also get the opportunity to hear three new pieces that have been specially commissioned for these events.

The LCMS Institute on Liturgy, Preaching and Church Music will feature large-choir and small-choir festival settings of Divine Service, Setting Five. Composed by Jonathan Kohrs and Jacob B. Weber respectively, these works will help the LCMS ring in its celebration of the five-hundredth Reformation anniversary.

At the WELS National Conference on Worship, Music, and the Arts, you’ll get to hear John A. Behnke’s arrangement of Lord, Keep Us Steadfast in Your Word. Based on the classic Reformation chorale, this piece also uses several Bible references to create a unique concertato.

Here’s where you can find us this year:

How to Find Us at Each Conference
