2023 Choir Tour

February 17, 2023

The Grand View University Choir will be performing through Iowa, Illinois, Kentucky, Tennessee, Alabama, Texas and Kansas as part of its 2023 Spring Tour. The Grand View Choir tours extensively throughout the United States as well as regularly in Europe. Wherever they sing, they have been praised for their excellence in musicality, blend, programming, and attention to detail. They conclude the tour with a home concert on Sunday, April 2 at 3 p.m. at Luther Memorial Church. 

The tour program, Wondrous Love, presents a timely message we all need to hear again and again. The promise that love still abides, embracing and emboldening us to reach out to one another, is carried through masterful works from the sacred choral tradition. Thoughtful texts are brought to life through the beautiful music of Dan Forrest, James Fritschel, Alice Parker, Elaine Hagenberg, René Clausen, Marques Garrett, Felix Mendelssohn, Eric Nelson, Philip Stopford, and others. 

Dr. Kathryn Pohlmann Duffy is Chair of the Grand View University Music Department and director of the Choir.  She holds degrees from Wartburg College, Waverly, Iowa; Kansas State University; and the University of Chicago, where she earned her Ph.D. in musicology.
