The concert is part of the choir’s 16-day, 2023 national tour of the Central United States.

Touring nationally and internationally since 1920, the choir has performed in nearly every major hall in the United States including Lincoln Center, Carnegie Hall, and the Kennedy Center, and continues to affirm its reputation as one of the nation’s finest a cappella choirs. Multiple ACDA National and Division performances and a performance and recording session with the Grammy Award-winning King’s Singers highlight the choir’s world-class quality. In May of 2022, the choir toured internationally to Italy and performed in St. Peter’s Basilica.

He is also the artistic director of the Emmy®-winning Concordia Christmas Concerts seen by audiences of 12,000 each year. He teaches vocal music education and church music courses, serves as campus supervisor for student teachers, and advises the student chapter of the American Choral Directors Association.
