The Festival of Liturgical Arts of the Western Reserve (FLAWR) is a synthesis of worship, workshops, discussions and masterclasses for musicians and clergy devoted to the continual development of their craft.  FLAWR was created to bring together preachers, teachers, musicians, artists to share their unique gifts in the creation of liturgies that reflect the beauty and splendor of God.

Worship at FLAWR will feature a wide variety of liturgical expressions feature well-crafted liturgies and music accessible and feasible for smaller congregations with more limited resources.  Workshops, lectures, and masterclasses are offered to provide small group sessions focused on specific topics. Panel discussions are designed to allow Festival participants an opportunity for open, honest discussion on liturgical issues.
