December 2007

For 80 years the small Lutheran Evangelical school out-on-the-Prairie, Concordia College, has had anything but a small vision when it comes to celebrating music. With a combined choir and orchestra of over 450 students, a Concordia College Christmas concert attracts capacity crowds from all faiths to celebrate the season and the promise it holds. Alison Young hosts this season's program with nationally-renowned conductor René Clausen leading the pure, youthful voices and instrumentalists in a concert called "On our Way Rejoicing," a potpourri of familiar and traditional works intertwined with original music that brings new sounds and meaning to the season. Come celebrate an hour of pure joy and peace with Concordia College Christmas.
