Devotion: Hodie!

Prior to every performance, the choir gathers together and one of the members shares a devotion. Sometimes the topic is one of the compositions or the text, sometimes it is about centering on what is happening at that very moment. Tim Sheie, a member of the bass section, is frequently called upon to give the devotion. After arriving at the airport in the early hours of Saturday, December 21, 2013, the choir flew to St Louis, Missouri and then boarded buses that took the to Christ Church Cathedral.

2013 Christmas Festival memories

Merry Christmas! ​As President of the National Lutheran Choir board, I often joke about having the awesome powers to compel staff and board members alike to do my bidding. I claim to rarely abuse these powers, but this Christmas I gently insisted that board and staff members share their fondest memories from this year's Christmas Festival.

Devotion: Promise of Peace

At rehearsal on December 3, 2013, in preparation of our upcoming Christmas Festival concerts, tenor Peter Moberg shared a devotion that is both a meditation and a choral history lesson. 

Tonight I have a kind of combination devotion and choral history lesson.  I've shared this story before, but it's been a while.  In fact, the year was 2 BCE (Before the Cherwien Era.)  The occasion was a concert at Orchestra Hall under the direction of Karl Erickson.  So I guess it's been long enough.
