Zion Lutheran to host the Singing Saints
Zion Lutheran Church, Vassar, will host a concert by The Singing Saints, a concert choir of Saint Paul Lutheran High School, Concordia, Mo. The choir features choral works based on the Word of God in the Bible.
The concert will be at 7 p.m. March 10, 2017, at the church, 23167 Topeka St., Vassar.
For Lutherans, the choir’s message is especially appropriate for the 500-year anniversary celebration of the Protestant Reformation in 1517. The first half of the concert contains selections based entirely upon the book of Psalms. The second portion of the program highlights pieces based on other portions of Scripture, including stories from the Gospel, exact Scripture passages, and hymns based upon well-known Biblical passages.
The award-winning Singing Saints Choir has toured annually since 1973 with more than 1,000 appearances in 29 states and Canada. They have performed in the past as a mass choir in Carnegie Hall in New York City.
The choir is under the direction of Dr. Jerrode Baker Marsh, who in 2015 came to Saint Paul Lutheran High School from Frankfurt, Germany, where she worked as a professional musician, pianist, conductor and collaborative artist, and church music director.
