Music education major Matthew Gerhold wants to use his talents to spark creativity and passion for music in his future students. Concordia is helping him get there, with some incredible experiences along the way.

“My favorite thing about Concordia is the fact that I get to travel and see places I never thought I would see in my life,” says Matthew. “My favorites are choir trips because I love to sing, and I love to travel. Put them together and you have an unforgettable experience!”

Even though sometimes it feels like all fun and games, Matthew knows that his music is making an impact.

“Concordia is a truly one-of-a-kind, awe-inspiring place to make and perform music, he says. “You know you are in the right place when you get shivers running down your spine in A Cappella rehearsal because of not only the beautiful sound, but the simple yet life-changing messages you share with your audience about Jesus Christ.”
