MORAVIAN MUSIC FESTIVAL is a multi-day event providing an opportunity for Moravians and non-Moravians to learn about and enjoy the Moravian musical heritage while obtaining the guidance needed to better interpret this music; and fostering the development of music and worship leadership skills through seminars, workshops, and participation in choral and instrumental groups with the goal of enriching the life of local congregations. The Festival is a ministry of the Moravian Church, meeting the spiritual and fellowship needs of its members; and is a forum for the discussion of current research on Moravian music; and is a vehicle for sharing the rich musical heritage and culture of Moravian communities with the music world at large.
