The choir is under the direction of Dr. James Marriott, the Seminary’s director of musical arts and the Kreft Chair for Music Arts. “Our concerts are beautiful, engaging and fun, featuring a wide variety of musical works that tell the story of our Savior,” Marriott said. “Each year as we travel across the nation, we delight in the opportunity to make witness of our faith through the gift of music. We cherish the connections we make with schools, universities, churches and communities, reinforcing the partnership in ministry that Concordia Seminary shares with the church in the world.”

A member of the Seminary’s admissions team will be available at each performance to talk with prospective students and anyone interested in church work opportunities, and to answer questions about the Seminary.

In spring 2020, Laudamus will tour the Boston and New York area March 13–18. Venues will be announced as soon as they are available.

The concerts are free and open to the public. Freewill offerings can be given to support the musical arts programs at the Seminary. To learn more about Laudamus and the fall tour, visit
