Moravian Music Festival
a celebration of music, created with inspiration, and presented with joy.
The Moravian Music Festival Experience
- the premiere venue for introducing newly-edited music from the archival collections;
- the only gathering designed specifically for both amateur and professional musicians in the Moravian Church;
- open to all, regardless of age, gender, or home town, denominational affiliation, or level of musical training!
When the entire congregation, the hundred-and-more voiced choir, the considerable orchestra, the organ and the forty-piece brass choir united at the close of the service in one tremendous voice: “Sing Hallelujah, Praise the Lord,” there could not have been a soul there who was not shaken to the very wellsprings of his being…
– Mary Virginia Borhek (1950, at the first Festival)
… it was a beautiful and meaningful experience.
It was a very joyful experience for me… Great music, great fellowship, great memories!
