Strengthening, renewing and preserving the Lutheran heritage of choral music through performances, workshops, recordings and commissions.
Your support on Give to the Max Day contributes to the National Lutheran Choir’s performance of the beloved Mass in B Minor by J.S. Bach on the 328th anniversary of Bach’s birth—March 21, 2013. Your support also sustains our All Saints, Christmas Festival and spring programs, performed in the Twin Cities and beyond.
The National Lutheran Choir, under the direction of Dr. David Cherwien, is a 67-voice choir that strengthens, renews and preserves the heritage of sacred choral music. Drawing on a rich and diverse repertoire, the choir performs works ranging from early chant to new compositions and from simple folk anthems to complex orchestral masterworks.
Congregations, colleges and communities host performances throughout the region and nation. The ensemble offers workshops in choral techniques, hymnody and liturgy; and commissions leading composers and publishes new compositions in partnership with Morningstar Music Publishing.
Each year, the choir releases a new recording. Accolades have come in the form of the Margaret Hillis Award for Choral Excellence from Chorus America and the Wittenberg Award from the Luther Institute.
The choir was founded in 1986 by Dr. Larry Fleming. From the beginning the choir has sung its faith and been a witness to the world.
