We are bringing back the Sing For Joy Hymn Festival!

January 22, 2023 — Posted by Carolyn Pierson '06

Yes, it is true, we are beyond excited to be bringing back the every-popular Sing For Joy Hymn Festival this year. As many of you know, former host Pastor Bruce Benson and music director John Ferguson went on the road with Sing For Joy back in the early 2000s. They lead a total of nine hymn festivals with guest choirs and congregations around the United States, which was a highlight for them in their years with the program. We have received countless requests from listeners to bring back these community events ever since!

Our new host, Rev. Alexandra Jacob, along with our new music director and talented organist, Andrew Jacob, will start up the hymn festival tradition again in 2023. Here are the details so far. We hope you can make it to one (or all!) of these!

The hymn festivals are an important part of Sing For Joy's public outreach and commitment to presenting the best in sacred music and commentary in many forms.
