Younger singers will be led by Beth Juran; older ones by Anne Saxon. In the afternoons they’ll also experience making sugar cake, making candles, trying out different musical instruments in a “petting zoo”, and having visits from such Moravian personalities as Count Zinzendorf and others.
Youth will have the opportunity to join the festival chorus, hand bell choir, concert band, trombone choir, or festival orchestra for a week of music making and instruction.
