On 10 and 11 September, eighty participants from all walks of life performed choral music at a special bicentenary festival held at the Bahá’í House of Worship in Sydney. The festival brought together a diverse array of composers, whose works celebrated the life and message of Bahá’u’lláh. Some 1,500 people attended the performances. An underlying theme of the festival was the essential relationship between worship of God and service to humanity.
