Golden Gate International Children’s and Youth Choral Festival, July 9-15, 2023.
Our two sopranos singing the part of the Youth in Elijah are members of the Piedmont East Bay Children’s Choir. The Choir is hosting the 12th Tri-Annual edition of the Festival, an unforgettable week of concerts, competitions, special events, and cultural exchange. In a world filled with borders, the Golden Gate Festival helps children to build bridges. The Golden Gate bridge symbolizes the connection of two worlds – travel, conversation, and understanding between cultures. Participating choirs will sing, learn, and live with their peers from far and wide, rendering the faceless into friends.
