Palm Sunday Choir Festival

The Palm Sunday Choir Festival

For more than 50 years the Bradford Congregational Church has hosted this annual worship service of praise featuring the choirs of surrounding town churches, instrumentalists and vocalists, and Combined Chorus.

Many traditions have endured over the years, such as the singing of five hymns with descants and organ embellishments. In addition, the final hymn is always the great “All Hail the Power of Jesus’ Name.” The sanctuary filled with singers resounds in 5-part majesty for every hymn and many attend to join in singingĀ  these hymns to life.

We hope you will mark this Palm Sunday evening musical journey through the Passion story on your calendar. You’ll be glad you did!

2020: April 5th at 6:30 pm

This year’s Combined Chorus will sing Mark Hayes’ evocative arrangement of “Fairest Lord Jesus” (performed in this link by the Festival Singers of Florida in 2014)
