Laudamus Rocky Mountain tour a success

laud1

Laudamus recently returned from its tour of the LCMS Rocky Mountain District. The select choir of seminarians performed at five churches in Nebraska, Colorado and New Mexico. This year’s tour program included selections from Brahms, Faure, Hogan, Poulenc, Josquin Des Pres, David von Kampen and more. The group also sang for the students of Trinity Lutheran School in Pueblo, Colo., and toured Bethlehem Lutheran Church in Lakewood, Colo., which serves the homeless and impoverished population of the Denver area.

Sightseeing stops included the Red Rock Amphitheater, Garden of the Gods and downtown Colorado Springs.

The group delighted in proclaiming the Gospel of Jesus Christ through music with these congregations and all others they met as part of the Rocky Mountain District’s Reformation500 celebration this year. To hear a small sampling from the tour, watch a video here of Laudamus singing “Were You There.”

The choir ended its spring tour with a final concert March 12 at Peace Lutheran Church in St. Louis, Mo.
