Choral Music Festival Concert

May 26 @ 9:30 am - 10:30 am


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.

Two concerts are offered, one at 9:30 am and one at 12:30 pm. Both are free and open to the public.

About the Bahá’í Calendar and Holy Days

The Baha’i Faith has its own calendar, called the Badí’ Calendar. It is a solar calendar consisting of 19 months of 19 days each (361 days), plus “Intercalary Days” (four in ordinary years and five in leap years) to adjust the calendar to the solar year. The days and months are named after the attributes of God. The Nineteen Day Feast, the primary community gathering for Baha’is in each town and city, is held on the first day of each Baha’i month. Eleven Holy Days mark significant events in Baha’i history.
