​​Dear friends,

There is a time and season for everything. Our need for restoration in Body and Earth, in Soul and Spirit, calls us to sing the healing of our world. I can think of no other single experience that can shape the lives of people more than travel.

To offer your singers an “in-person” experience of London is to invite them into the culture of one of the great cities of the world. Let us travel beyond today's virtual culture and join together in-person with a calling to heal in my favorite city in all the world.

I can't wait to sing with you in London.

Best,

John Dickson

Festival Artistic Director
