Profile: Andrew Van Velson
Senior Music Education major Andrew Van Velson comes from a musical family. Both his parents were involved in choir and band, and the whole family performed in the Annual Frontier Revue in North Platte.
At Concordia, Andrew is involved in A Cappella, Chamber Choir, Jazz Ensemble, Pep Band, and the Symphonic Band. “Touring is my favorite part,” he says. “Not only do I get to see all the different areas of the United States, I get to meet different people and see different cultures. I think most importantly we’re spreading the Good Word around, spreading the Gospel to people who not only hear it every week, but some people who come to our concerts that aren’t members of the church.”
