About Derek (Fedya)

I am Derek John Power, currently in the process of completing my undergraduate studies at the College of William and Mary in Williamsburg, VA. The main project that I have recently completed is a thesis analyzing Arvo Pärt's rendition of the "Canon of Repentance to our Lord Jesus Christ" entitled Kanon Pokajanen (to be defended on Glorious Monday in the Blue Room of the Wren Building). In addition to using music analysis, I also use Orthodox spirituality and theology to conclude that the music that Pärt composed does reflect repentance as the Orthodox Church understands it. I will graduate - God willing - on May 15 2005.

I was born on September 6 1982 in Great Falls, MT, USA and was raised in the United Methodist Church. Right before attending William and Mary, I had an interest in learning more about the Orthodox Church. On November 9 2002, I was received into the Orthodox Church - specifically at Ss. Constantine and Helen Greek Orthodox Church in Newport News, VA (hence the numbers in my username). My chrism name is Theodoros after St. Theodore the Studite and within the Church, I much prefer to be called Fedya (the Russian diminutive). I attend services primarily at Ss. Constantine and Helen, Newport News whilst in school and the Protection of the Holy Mother of God Orthodox Church in Falls Church, VA whilst at home.

Aside from theology, I am very interested in music and film. My favorite academic subjects also include history and philosophy and I have also shown interest in art, economics, government, international affairs, literature, neurology, physics, poetry, politics and psychology.
