University Concert Band plans 2022 Spring Tour

Published by Brooke Lange 1 year ago on Fri, Mar 25, 2022 1:51 PM

Concordia’s University, Nebraska’s Concert Band will travel to Nebraska, South Dakota, Minnesota and Iowa for their concert band tour April 7-11.  

Sites for the band’s performances include Lutheran High Northeast, Norfolk, Nebraska; Sioux Falls Lutheran School, Sioux Falls, South Dakota; Mayer Lutheran High School, Mayer, Minnesota; Trinity Lutheran Church, Waconia, Minnesota; Concordia Academy, Roseville, Minnesota; and St. Paul Lutheran Church, Fort Dodge, Iowa.  

"As Concordia University's premiere instrumental ensemble, the University Concert Band is deeply rooted in the more than 100-year history of instrumental musical ensembles at Concordia. Concordia's first dedicated music professor, Karl Hasse, organized the first instrumental music ensemble in 1906, and the University Concert Band continues to build on the legacy and tradition of excellence in instrumental music at Concordia. The Concert Band keeps an active performance schedule both on and off campus, having performed concerts in more than 20 states in the past 20 years. Most recently, the ensemble toured to Alabama, Indiana, Texas, the Pacific Northwest, Florida, Illinois, and Iowa. In addition to the ensemble's music being featured on broadcasts of The Lutheran Hour, the Concert Band has released two CD recordings: In the Spring and Winds from the Prairie." 

Director Kurt 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. Free-will offerings will be taken at evening concerts to help defray tour expenses.
