Minnesota All-State Lutheran Choir Auditions

Sunday, February 22, 4:00-5:00 p.m., Sanctuary

Founded in 1969 by Mark Aamot, the Minnesota All-State Lutheran Choir (MASLC), is currently under the direction of Dr. Thomas D. Rossin. During its 40 plus years, the choir has grown to include over 1,450 alumni who have shared sacred music and Christian witness in approximately 150 churches throughout the state.  Each year high school students all over the state audition for the 40-65 voice choir. In June, the choir assembles at beautiful Mt. Carmel Camp near Alexandria. There, in seclusion, the singers participate in eight days of rehearsal, Bible study and discussion concerning the meaning of the texts they will be singing on the tour.
