FOREST CITY – Waldorf’s first choral concert of the academic year is set for 7 p.m., Thursday, October 10, at Immanuel Lutheran Church in Forest City.
The theme “10/10: A Perfect Score” not only describes the concert date, but also the talent of the three Waldorf ensembles performing.
“Our fall concert explores the wide variety of music written for choral ensembles. There will be a little bit of something for everyone,” said Dr. Adam Luebke, director of choral activities at Waldorf College. “The choirs have progressed tremendously so far this year and have really embraced each piece.”
The college’s premier touring ensemble, the Waldorf Choir, will perform sacred anthems and spirituals, along with a newly composed piece by Waldorf composer-in-residence Nancy Farndale. Waldorf’s chamber choir Schola Cantorum will sing pop songs from British singer-songwriter Mika, British alternative rock group Coldplay, and American pop band Fun, while Sangkor, a choir made up of students, faculty, staff, and Forest City community members, will present sacred anthems, folksongs, and a pop number.
Dr. Luebke conducts the Waldorf Choir and Schola Cantorum, while Travis Beck, director of music at Immanuel Lutheran Church, conducts Sangkor.
The community is invited to attend this free event.
