NLC Ultimate Insider Package
How much do you love the National Lutheran Choir?  The ultimate insider package will make you the honorary 66th and 67th members of the National Lutheran Choir for the 2016-17 Season--a once in a 500 year opportunity.   You will travel with the choir to Seattle, Tacoma, Salem and Portland from Thursday, September 28 to Monday, October 2, 2017.  Airfare, hotel and bus transportation provided. You will serve as members of the liturgical party for the Christmas Festival performances at the Basilica of Saint Mary in Minneapolis and attend the Choir's after-party, where Christmas tunes and good cheer abound.  Your presence will be requested (and paid for) at the 2017 Undercroft dinner (12/8) and the 2018 Gala (4/15).  You will receive a weekly "subscription" to the Tuning Fork (the NLC newsletter), packets of music for each concert on loan from NLC music library, and copies of the Artistic Director's and Assistant Conductor's musical notes.  As a memento of your year in the National Lutheran Choir, you will receive your own NLC cross, reminiscent of those worn by the singers during performances and finally, you will be serenaded with the "The Lord Bless You and Keep You," the last time we are together, as is traditional for departing choir members.
