Weekend Choral Festival 2108

Theme:  Transformation

The 2018 Choral Festival is inspired by the transforming power of singing through the choral tradition.

Music can change the world because music changes people. –Bono

Beauty will save the world.  –Dostoyevsky

Our theme for the 2018 festival is Transformation. Dr. Bartel explains, “The idea of transformation takes off on the fact that both singers and listeners are transformed in a unique way through experiences of music-making.  When thinking of a musical experience (like the festival) we can envision both an inward-focused transformation and an outward-focused transformation.”

Music for the festival will include songs of introspection, and spiritual and intellectual awakening, to reflect inward-focused transformation. Other songs will encourage action and stepping out in new directions to inspire outward-focused transformation.

Dr. Bartel’s idea is that we will create an experience that truly makes a difference to both the singers and the congregation.
