We have been lucky to have such well respected national touring artists as well as fantastic local musicians be so enthusiastic about taking part in the Sing Out Loud Festival. This year, we also really look forward to incorporating some panel discussions that will focus on several topics such as the state of the music industry, professional development, management and touring.”

Last year’s inaugural festival welcomed an estimated 15,000 music fans, featured 315 performing artists at 10 venues around St. Augustine. The multi-year commitment made by Community First Credit Union to the St. Johns County Cultural Events Division helps support events that would not be as large without private support. Community First Credit Union has been a longtime sponsor and partner with the St. Augustine Amphitheatre supporting the annual Night Owl Cinema events as well as many years of December to Remember festivals and concerts.

“Community First is proud to continue our commitment to those who love being entertained,” said John Hirabayashi, CEO and president of Community First Credit Union. “We’re proud that the first year of Sing Out Loud was so successful and we’re happy to help present it for a second year.
