Luther College Nordic Choir
Nordic Choir, founded in 1946, enjoys national and international stature as one of the premier collegiate choral ensembles in the United States. Acclaimed for the way it honors the Lutheran choral tradition while also featuring new and innovative choral works, the choir showcases versatility, artistry, and technical mastery across many genres of music.
Nordic Choir is under the direction of Dr. Andrew Last ’97. Last arrived at Luther in the fall of 2012 and became Director of Choral Activities in 2017.
Nordic Choir is Luther’s principal touring choir in a choral program that comprises three upper-class mixed touring choirs and two first-year choirs. More than 500 singers from these ensembles combine with Symphony Orchestra, Luther Ringers, and pipe organ for five annual Christmas at Luther performances. Each year more than 8,000 people attend Christmas at Luther, and audiences across the country have enjoyed watching it as a nationally broadcast holiday special.
This concert is presented in memory of Cathedral Concerts and Luther College Board Member Dennis Flatness.
