OAMC Performs 20th Spring Festival

The Oregon Adventist Men’s Chorus (OAMC) celebrated its 20th Annual Spring Festival with two concerts at Sunnyside Church in Portland, Ore., on Sabbath, April 5.

OAMC’s director, David Wyman, conducted more than 70 men representing churches from Oregon, Washington and Idaho, as well as 22 singers of the William Chunestudy Men’s Chorus from Loma Linda, Calif.

About 550 free tickets were available for each concert through Eventbrite.com. The tickets went fast, and each concert ended up with a waiting list of OAMC fans who waited for a miracle that would allow them to enjoy the singing of this chorus. On the day of the event the wishes of their hearts were granted, as every person on the list was able to secure a seat. About 1,200 people attended. Those who couldn’t attend this event had the option of watching it streamed live online.

The two-hour program was well-executed and spiritually charged. God’s name was praised through OAMC’s singing and through the performance of the Festival Ensemble that accompanied the chorus during both concerts.

Those who missed the opportunity to attend the Spring Festival will be glad that the OAMC will be performing at the Oregon Conference Camp Meeting in Gladstone, Ore., this summer.

OAMC continues to be committed to its mission and vision to present the gospel of Jesus Christ through music; to reach out to include, encourage and mentor young men of the church; and to encourage and support men’s chorus ministries around the world. For more information, visit www.oamc.org.
