2016 Diocesan Choir Festival PosterChoirs from throughout the diocese are invited to participate in the annual Diocesan Choir Festival at the Cathedral on Saturday, January 30 at 10:00 am.

Come one, come all to hear the beautiful sounds of the diverse choirs from throughout the Diocese of Oakland.  Admission is free.

We will celebrate the unique voices of each of our parishes, as well as the diversity of talents and cultures with which we are blessed.

In keeping with the Jubilee of Mercy, the theme for this year’s festival is “Sacred Songs of Mercy” and parish choirs are invited to sing any liturgical music with reference to mercy.

Each parish is invited to register ONE (1) choir, and the choir can range from full SATB choir, to unison choirs, to small vocal ensembles, children's choirs, youth choirs, adult choirs, senior choirs, etc.  Each choir is allotted a piece of approximately 3 minutes in length.  The Cathedral has a pipe organ and a grand piano.  Any other instruments used can be coordinated closer to the time.

Diocesan Choir Festival Committee:  Rudy de Vos, Denise Kogler, Ariel Mayormita, Miguel Villalobos, Helena Dietrich, JaNet Hancock, Joseph Hebert.

Please register your choir online by January 15! 2016 Diocesan Choir Festival Registration
