Concert / Event Announcement Details

TuneUp your choir with Dr. Lee Nelson and the National Lutheran Choir!

As part of its mission to support church musicians, the National Lutheran Choir offers a Choral TuneUp program, in which church choirs and their directors come together to learn music and work on choral technique alongside the NLC. Emphasis is placed on helping choirs prepare specific pieces for presentation in their own parishes. This year's literature consists of music that can be added to the choirs' repertoire and used as appropriate throughout the liturgical calendar year. The pieces are varied in style, voicing and difficulty, and useful for all church choirs. Music and registration is available now on the National Lutheran Choir's website,
