After reviewing input from survey submissions, having conversations, and considering options for lodging, guest director, repertoire, and if course the pandemic and the unknowns for your churches and the festival, we have decided to not have Youth Festival 2022.
We appreciate your understanding, knowing the struggles we all share during these challenging days.
