Concordia University, Nebraska’s music department will present The Fall Hymn Festival, a celebration of scripture told through music and sound, Saturday, Oct. 12, at 5:30 p.m., at St. John Lutheran Church in Seward. The festival is free and open to the public.

Dr. Jeffrey Blersch, professor of music and university organist at Concordia and Paul Soulek, adjunct professor of music and conductor of the Concordia Male Chorus, will accompany the event and lead the assembly in singing a combination of hymns and choral anthems. Concordia’s Cantamus Women’s Choir, conducted by Blersch, and the Male Chorus conducted by Soulek, will all perform at the festival.

“The ability to unite our voices in singing our faith is a tremendous blessing,” said Blersch, “It gives us a wonderful opportunity to share that faith with others.”
