City Wide Hymn Fest

The annual 2018 City Wide Hymn Fest will be held in Washington Park at the Thomas Rees Memorial Carillon.  This interdenominational hymn sing is free to the public and open to everyone who enjoys singing along with, or listening to, traditional hymns. The Trinity Summer Band will provide musical interludes.  Our own Carlo van Ulft will provide Carillon music, beginning at 3 p.m., as well as accompanying the hymns on the Carillon. Bring lawn chairs or blankets. New this year is a joint effort of seven Springfield churches, including St. John’s, to assemble a children’s choir to sing various hymn verses during the event.  For more information call the Carillon Office at: 217-546-3853
