Each year more than 200 diverse singers from many faiths and backgrounds come from across the country and around the globe to take part in a Choral Music Festival at the Baha'i House of Worship. Since its start in 2006, the annual Bahá’í House of Worship Choral Festival has attracted singers and sacred music lovers from around the world. Each year 200 or more voices soar in the 72-foot dome, adding harmonies to the holy words of the world's religions, as audience members contemplate their beautiful, uplifting sentiments. The multi-cultural programs include classical choral arrangements, new Bahá’í Gospel compositions, traditional folk songs, and Negro spirituals. The concerts are sung entirely a capella, in four or more parts. Singers memorize their parts so they can sing without sheet music, and be totally focused on the director and each other. The music is offered as sacred, devotional prayer.
Admission Fee Varies.
