Oratorical Festival

Oratorical Festival

The Saint John Chrysostom Oratorical and Fine Arts Festival is a longstanding tradition that provides a unique opportunity for our youth both to learn about their faith and to display their talents in the areas of Speech, Essay, Poetry, Iconography and Vocal Solo (new category as of 2019). Those who are successful at their individual parish festivals are invited to participate at the Metropolis Festival each spring.

2022 Oratorical Festival

The 2022 Chicago Metropolis Saint John Chrysostom Oratorical & Fine Arts Festival will be held Bright Saturday, April 30, 2022 from 9am-2pm at Annunciation Greek Orthodox Church, Milwaukee, Wisconsin. The Oratorical Committee members will introduce and judge the Speech and Vocal Solo categories on Bright Saturday.  As in previous years, the EssayPoetry and Iconography categories will be judged earlier that week.  The event booklet will be available after the conclusion of the event. The Oratorical Committee appreciates everyone’s participation and financial contributions. We look forward to this year’s event!
