About

Artistic Director David Cherwien says of the program: “the Church sings because there is so much to sing about, and singing is the deepest way to embody the sacred story we share.” The National Lutheran Choir sings this sacred and spiritual story in a way that is guaranteed to soothe your soul. The eclectic program will feature choral works by Felix Mendelssohn (Psalm 100, “Jauchzet dem Herrn”), Ralph Vaughan Williams (Mass in G minor), and “The Spheres” from Ola Gjeilo’s Sunrise Mass set alongside new arrangements of familiar tunes, including Kenneth Dake's “Sweet Hour of Prayer.”

The 60-voice National Lutheran Choir seeks to strengthen, renew and preserve the heritage of sacred choral music through the highest standards of performance and literature.
