About usIn 1998, the congregation of the First Baptist Church voted to explore the desirability and feasibility of introducing a biennial festival of sacred music into the Kalamazoo area. With financial support from the Irving S. Gilmore Foundation and the Kalamazoo Community Foundation, and with input from a committee of area religious and community leaders, the project got underway in 1999. In 2000, an area-wide representative group met to prepare for the festival’s introduction and decided to call it the Michigan Festival of Sacred Music. A Board of Directors was formed in 2001 with the goal of making the festival a reality. The first Festival was an overwhelming success, and through 2015, the Festival was held every two years. In 2016, in response to requests from its audience, the Michigan Festival of Sacred Music became an annual event.The annual fall Festival was rebranded as the Connecting Chords Music Festival in 2018, a name we believe more fully represents our program offerings and mission.
