The concert is part of Nordic Choir's 2018 tour of the Midwest and Colorado. The choir tours annually and has performed around the world, appearing in Norway, England, Ireland, Germany, Russia, Poland, Hungary, Romania, the Baltic countries, Mexico and the Caribbean. Nordic Choir has also appeared throughout the United States, performing in such well-known concert halls as Lincoln Center in New York and the Kennedy Center in Washington, D.C. Most recently, the choir traveled to Italy and performed in Rome, Florence and Venice.
Nordic Choir, founded in 1946, enjoys national and international acclaim as a premier collegiate choral ensemble in the United States. This tour marks the first year of the Nordic Choir under the baton of Dr. Andrew Last, Luther alumnus of 1997. Last was preceded by the leadership of Allen Hightower, Craig Arnold and the 57-year tenure of Weston Noble.
Luther is home to one of the largest collegiate music programs in the world with six choirs, three bands, three orchestras, two jazz bands and numerous chamber ensembles, totaling more than 800 student musicians. Luther's students perform in large ensembles, faculty-coached chamber groups, private lessons and master classes. Nearly 275 music majors study music theory/ear training, history, education, composition, church music and performance.
