The National Lutheran Choir presented a concert in the Chapel of St. Timothy and St. Titus on the Concordia Seminary campus on Sunday, April 19. The concert was the fourth appearance for the group as it continues its 1998 Spring Tour. A large audience was treated to a wide range of choral works including those composed by Bach, Schutz and Mendelssohn.
The National Lutheran Choir (NLC) is comprised of professional church musicians who perform literature from the entire spectrum of sacred choral works, with and without instrumental accompaniment. Selected by audition, the singers are drawn from a 200-mile radius of Minneapolis/St. Paul. All have received advanced training and most are professionally active in various areas of music.
Under the direction of Larry L. Fleming, a noted conductor and composer of both choral and instrumental music, the NLC travels nationally and internationally, makes many radio and television appearances, conducts numerous workshops in choral techniques, hymnody and liturgy, and, in so doing, gives unprecedented expression to one of our finest music traditions.
“We are delighted and honored to be chosen by the National Lutheran Choir as one of the sites for its 1998 Spring Tour,” commented Rev. Glen Thomas, Vice President for Seminary Relations at Concordia Seminary. “The concert provided a great source of inspiration for those in the St. Louis area and gave clear witness to the life, death and resurrection of Jesus Christ.”
