Published by Brooke Lange 7 months ago on Wed, Feb 15, 2023 4:04 PM

Concordia University, Nebraska’s Chamber Choir will travel to Nebraska and Iowa for its performance tour February 23-27. 

The 13-voice choir, comprised of mostly music majors, has performed concerts and school assemblies throughout the Midwest including performances at the Nebraska Music Educator’s annual conference, the Columbus NCDA Jazz Festival, The Creston, Iowa FoxFest and in the historic Sheldon Concert Hall in St. Louis, Missouri. 

For this tour, the University Chamber Choir has planned a concert of traditional and contemporary chamber choral works including music by John Amner, Tomas Luis de Victoria, Daniel Gawthrop, Richard Shepherd, Paul Manz, William Dawson and others. While all the anthems are based on sacred texts, there is a great variety of styles including motets, anthems, folk songs, gospels, and spirituals. 

Concordia’s chamber choir is directed by Kurt Von Kampen. Von Kampen earned a bachelor’s degree in music from Concordia University, Nebraska, a master’s degree in choral conducting from Oakland University and a doctorate in choral music education from the University of Nebraska. 

Admission to the concerts is free and open to the public.
