Minnesota All-State Lutheran Choir

Posted in Faith & Worship

A group of about 40 high school singers who make up the 2010 Minnesota All-State Lutheran Choir will perform Wednesday, June 23 at 7:30pm at St. Paul's UCC/ELCA Church. The concert is free and open to the public. For more information, please call St. Paul's Church at 507-523-2643.

Chosen from applicants from all over the state of Minnesota, these Lutheran young people have been rehearsing at Mount Carmel Ministries Camp near Alexandria, Minnesota prior to embarking on their present tour.

The Minnesota All-State Lutheran Choir program, celebrating its 41st year, exists to provide an aesthetic experience via choral music and to impart to local congregations enthusiasm and appreciation for music, new and old, in the worship service. The choir will be performing a great variety of music from the classics to gospel.

The choir is under the direction of Dr. Thomas D. Rossin. Now in his 20th year with the Minnesota All-State Lutheran Choir, he is the founder and director of "Exultate", a chamber choir and orchestra based in the Twin Cities.

Unique to this concert is audience participation. Each concert is concluded with the choir seated

within the audience and everyone taking part in the singing of hymns. This is done to share with the congregations the joy involved in singing the hymns of the church. Another unique aspect of this concert is that the choir sings only a portion of its concert in the traditional choir formation. Placing itself in other formations throughout the sanctuary, the choir effectively involves the audience in this praise of God through music.
