About the Festival of Spirituals
The Festival of Spirituals, which actually predates the founding of Cimarron Circuit, has been a Palm Sunday tradition since 1970. The late Thomas and Carol Brice Carey, opera singers and Cimarron Circuit founders, developed the annual festival to keep aspects of African-American heritage alive. A selection of new and familiar spirituals will be presented by community, student and guest singers. The festival is one of only a few nationwide that seeks to preserve this original American art form and the stories surrounding its evolution. This years line up includes the Northern Oklahoma College choir, led by Brandon Haynes, First Christian Church Choir, Langston's University Bonita Franklin, and many others.
