Free Choral Workshop at Luther College; All are invited to attend

Join Luther College alumni and friends for a two-part workshop, “Scandinavian Sounds: Learn and Sing!” Tuesday, July 25 and Wednesday, July 26. The workshop will be held from 7-8:15 p.m. each evening in the Choir Room of the Jenson-Noble Hall of Music on the Luther College campus in Decorah.

Choral music traditions in the upper Midwest are indelibly linked to the musical heritage of Nordic immigrants. Among the subcultures within American choral music, the most influential and long-lasting may well be the one founded and guided by Norwegian conductor and composer F. Melius Christiansen. Christiansen’s reach in this part of the choral world is pervasive. Participants will learn about the “Lutheran Choral Tradition” and engage in singing at a level suitable for folks of all interest and ability levels.

The workshop will be led by Dr. Mark Potvin, conductor of Cathedral Choir and Norskkor at Luther College. All are welcome to attend. Registration is not required.
