On Saturday, April 13, 2013 Virginia Theological Seminary and the Center for the Ministry of Teaching will be hosting a music festival featuring a diverse line-up of Christian artists. Musical performances by Joel Joa (urban), The Sloan River Project (contemporary rock), Fran McKendree (singer-songwriter), The Letter Black (hard rock), and headliners Five Iron Frenzy (third wave ska) will begin on the stage of the campus Grove at noon along with poetry and spoken word performances.
The event opens at 9 am and will continue until 10 pm. “Like any great music festival there will be food – lots of it – and activities to draw the young and young at heart together…” shares Dr. Lisa Kimball, Interim Associate Dean of Students and the Director of the Center for the Ministry of Teaching. In addition to food and music, the festival will begin that morning with a Quidditch clinic and tournament–the competitive sport featured in the Harry Potter books and films.
The festival is free to the public of all ages and could be a great group experience for the youth and young adults in your parish. Parish leaders might consider inviting the students within their parish or neighborhood and coordinating carpools. Details about the festival can be found on the VTS website. Registration is now open here. You can also download fliers for distribution here.
