Gretchaninoff Passion Week

Thursday, April 30, 2015 - 8:00pm
Saturday, May 2, 2015 - 7:00pm

The National Lutheran Choir brings Alexander Gretchaninoff's glorious Passion Week to the majestic Basilica of Saint Mary in Minneapolis and Zumbro Lutheran Church in Rochester. Each year, the Orthodox Church remembers and re-experiences the seven days leading up to Easter Sunday through worship and music. Alexander Gretchaninoff developed his Passion Week, a magnificent representation of 13 sacred musical settings, for this "Great and Holy Week." Join us for a transcendent journey of the soul that you won't soon forget.

Auditions for the 2015-2016 Season

There are several steps in the audition process, all with the purpose of identifying singers who are musically compatible, able to fully commit to the schedule, and who demonstrate a commitment to the highest musical standards. All singers of the choir have very busy schedules -- yet a commitment to the choir is a joy when we all do our part and the artistic product is the highest level of excellence. Our music making is hard work and the expectations are high. 

Devotion: Philosophy of Music 101

This week's devotion was written by NLC bass section member, Dave Michel. Get ready to embrace paradox!

This is Philosophy of Music 101. I am your instructor, Mr. Michel (M-I-no T-C-H-E-one L).

My goal for this class is to identify some distinctive aspects of music as an art form, and explore how music might inform life and spirituality. This course being about philosophy, just about everything I say today will be derivative and based on other's work. This won't surprise those of you who've had any of my other classes - derivative is just another way of saying "relational.” This is not a bad thing.
