Concordia University’s A Cappella Choir to perform in
Kansas, Oklahoma, Texas and Louisiana on Spring Choral Tour
“The A Cappella Choir strives to perform music at a high artistic level – music which inspires, instructs and entertains the listener,” said Dr. Kurt E. von Kampen, conductor. “But the mission of the choir goes beyond mere artistry. The University A Cappella Choir exists to proclaim the Gospel of Christ in song and to honor God with the musical talents the students have been given.”
The internationally acclaimed choir will perform concerts at churches and schools in nine cities on their 10-day tour. Concert sites include Holy Trinity Lutheran Church in Edmond, Oklahoma, Trinity Klein Lutheran Church in Spring Texas, Trinity Downtown Lutheran Church in Houston, Texas, St. Paul Lutheran Church in Austin, Texas, Crown of Life Lutheran Church in San Antonio, Texas, St. John Lutheran Church in Lake Charles, Louisiana (March 7 at 7:00 p.m.), Faith Lutheran Church in Plano, Texas, Holy Cross Lutheran Church in Wichita, Kansas, First Lutheran Church and St. John’s Lutheran Church in Topeka, Kansas.
The A Cappella Choir has toured the U.S. each year and internationally approximately every four years since its inception in 1939, performing throughout Europe, the Middle East, Australia, Asia, Mexico, and most recently South Africa. It also has participated in international choral festivals in Australia and Austria, placing first and third respectively while under the direction of Dr. von Kampen.
Admission to concerts is free. Free-will offerings will be taken at evening concerts to help defray tour expenses.
