This is what a Choir Festival rehearsal looks like–this photograph is from July 2010.   The OGCMA Choir Festival is one of the most incredible musical events in America.  Don’t miss it.

It will be a challenge to prepare safely, but everything ought to be fine by the new date of August 30, 2020 from 7 pm to 8:30 pm.

This will be the 66th Annual Festival.
