choir festival

Where can you find
213 basses
134 tenors
364 altos
and 336 sopranos
(creating a grand total of 1047 voices)
(plus a sound guy)
all in the same place?

That’s right- the (2007) 53rd annual Choir Festival in Ocean Grove’s Great Auditorium!

It’s big. Churches from about 168 churches across the country (mostly NJ, but NY, PA, VT, CT, TX, SC, and OH are represented) participate in this thing.
