"Jubilee" in 2018!
Join us as Maranatha Baptist University celebrates our 50th year! Great Lakes Music Festival can be described as a musically enriching weekend of concentrated music-making with instrumental, vocal, and piano enthusiasts grades 8-12. Experience the thrill of performing in a choir of both high school and university students while also participating in a focused track: band, orchestra, piano, men’s chorus, or ladies’ chorus/tone chimes. You will not want to miss out on this amazing musical experience!
