Welcome to The Mark Thallander Foundation. Since our founding in 2005, we have been creating extraordinary and inspirational music events for communities throughout the country through dynamic choral and organ repertoire. Under the direction of Mark Thallander and committed members of the community, the Foundation collaborates with churches and schools to offer unforgettable and enriching concerts and Festivals that connect Christian communities, lift spirits and deepen faith.
Our Festivals are unique music and worship experiences that bring together the voices of many choirs, which are led by outstanding conductors and accompanied by organists and pianists who are dedicated to musical excellence.
We invite you to explore our site and contact us if you are interested in learning how to host a Festival in your community.
