Concordia University Wisconsin Kammerchor spring tour

Location: Wisconsin, USA
Choir type: College and University Choirs
Voicing: Mixed
Kammerchor, Concordia University Wisconsin's premier touring ensemble, will be traveling and performing through southern California, Arizona, and New Mexico during its annual spring tour.  Unless indicated otherwise below, admission is free to all performances, but a freewill offering will be collected.
 
Currently under the direction of Dr. Alexa Doebele, Kammerchor (German for “chamber choir”) was founded by Dr. Kenneth T. Kosche as a small vocal group selected from concurrent membership in the Concordia Chorale.  In 1981 it became established as Concordia’s touring choir, and the Concordia Chorale became the chapel choir.  Tours subsequently have taken Kammerchor virtually all over the continental USA, several times to Canada, and overseas to locations as varied as Brazil, Great Britain, Hong Kong, Taiwan, Shanghai, the Czech Republic, and Slovakia.  Kammerchor has provided recorded music for broadcasts of The Lutheran Hour, the radio ministry of the International Lutheran Laymen’s League, and for Worship for Shut-Ins.  Membership in Kammerchor is not limited to music majors, but includes students with a range of majors and minors.  Kammerchor sings a wide variety of choral literature from the Renaissance to the present, including concert pieces, anthems, spirituals, and hymns.
