"So Much to Sing About" performed by the National Lutheran Choir.
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 Minnesota based National Lutheran Choir sings this sacred and spiritual story in a way that is guaranteed to soothe your soul. This eclectic program, led by Artistic Director, David Cherwien, will feature choral works by Felix Mendelssohn and Ralph Vaughan Williams set alongside new arrangements of familiar tunes.
