Laudamus choir Spring 2023 Concert Tour set
Laudamus, Concordia Seminary, St. Louis’ premier choir, will perform at 11 churches, schools and universities in Illinois and Wisconsin during the Spring 2023 Concert Tour.
“All are welcome to be refreshed by the rich voices of the Laudamus men’s choir as they sing of God’s forgiveness and grace in Jesus,” said Greg Gastler, interim choral director at the Seminary. “We cherish the connections made with the schools, universities, churches and communities we visit, which reinforces the partnership in ministry that Concordia Seminary shares with the church in the world.”
