Year-end Annual Fund Drive
Our biggest season ever is almost in the books! To celebrate, we’ll take a look back through the highlights of this our 32nd season as we invite you to consider making a gift in our Year-End Annual Fund Drive. Our fiscal year ends June 30, and we need your help!
The Holy Spirit Mass
THE highlight of our year was the World Premiere of Kim André Arnesen’s Holy Spirit Mass, first in Washington D.C. and later in the Twin Cities. Late October found the Choir singing in the splendor and ecumenical beauty of the Basilica of the National Shrine of the Immaculate Conception—in front of dignitaries from the Roman Catholic, Evangelical Lutheran, and Missouri Synod Lutheran churches.
Singing to the nation
September 2017 saw the Choir travel to the Pacific Northwest (Seattle, Tacoma, Portland, and Salem) to celebrate the 500th anniversary of the Reformation. For our first trip to this region of the country, we were astonished by all of the local support: from concert attendees to massed choir participants, Lutherans in the Pacific Northwest SHOWED UP and showed us what the “Re-forming Church” really means.
After a monumental year of premieres and touring, the National Lutheran Choir and it's patrons braved the historic April blizzard of 2018 to raise a record breaking $175,000 for our future endeavors. We are truly humbled and amazed by our patrons' excitement for the work we do, the music we sing, and the mission we uphold. Join us in topping off the tank after a year of milestones!
