OBU Keyboard Festival

"Let the word of Christ dwell in you richly in all wisdom; teaching and admonishing one another in psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing with grace in your hearts to the Lord." Colossians 3:16

The OBU Keyboard Festival exists to encourage the development of gifted young pianists and organists to the service and glory of God. We are excited that you have chosen to be a part of this festival and are thankful for your time and dedication to teaching, practicing, and sharing the gift of music!
