DIXON – The National Lutheran Choir, a 60-plus mixed voice chorus based in the Minneapolis and St. Paul, Minn., area, will perform at 7 p.m. Feb. 27 at Historic Dixon Theatre, 114 S. Galena Ave.

The performance is part of the Sauk Valley Community Concert Association’s 22nd season.

The choir’s members come from a variety of choral backgrounds, including singers from such college choirs as the St. Olaf Choir, Concordia Choir, Luther Nordic Choir, Augustana College Choir, and the Gustavus Choir.

Founded by Dr. Larry Fleming in 1989, the choir is now under the musical direction of Dr. David Cherwien. His work in the music of the Lutheran church is known throughout the country. He has served as a full-time church musician for more than 20 years in Seattle, Chicago and Berlin, and on the faculties of Gustavus Adolphus and Elmhurst Colleges. Currently, he serves as cantor at Mt. Olive Lutheran Church in Minneapolis. 

The National Lutheran Choir program will consist of classical, sacred, spirituals, and a few very lively gospel songs. Single tickets will be available at the door for this concert, which opens the spring portion of the 2013-2014 season for the SVCCA. The final concert of the season will be the Abrams Brothers on April 10 at the Abiding Word Hall in Sterling.

Included with membership in the Sauk Valley Community Concert Association are reciprocal privileges to see the shows of the Ottawa and Freeport Concert Association shows for no additional cost – a total of eight additional concerts.
