This event gathers singers, adults, youth and children, to come and spend the weekend of Oct. 4-6, rehearsing together and performing a concert on Sunday, Oct. 6. Festival leaders, Ron Sherwin and Sarah McQuarrie provide a fun and relaxed atmosphere to learn music that inspires and lifts the spirit.
