Arnold, who joined the Luther faculty in 2005, plans to join his wife, Sarah, who is teaching at University Medical and Dental School of New Jersey and finishing a doctorate from Drew University. The Arnolds will reside in Summit, N.J.
Craig Arnold, Luther College professor of music, director of choral activities, and conductor of the internationally acclaimed Nordic Choir, has announced his intention to leave his position at Luther at the end of the academic year.
Arnold said his decision to leave Luther was a difficult one after five years of success in the transition of Nordic Choir to a new era. Arnold was named director of the Nordic Choir after the storied 57-year tenure of internationally known conductor Weston Noble who retired in 2005. Arnold said his time at Luther has been a rewarding experience.
