Grand View Choir to Tour; Home Concert on April 3
February 17, 2016
The Grand View University Choir will go on a ten-day 2016 Spring Tour through Iowa, Minnesota, Wisconsin, Michigan, and Indiana. They will return home on March 20 and perform their home concert at 3:00 p.m. April 3 at Luther Memorial Church in Des Moines.
The tour program is structured around key elements of Christian worship: Kyrie, Gloria, Sanctus, and Agnus Dei. Each cluster of pieces throughout the program expands on these ancient texts through the fresh choral sounds of composers such as Andrea Ramsey, Ola Gjeilo, James Fritschel, Knut Nystedt, Jean Berger, David Cherwien, and others.
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.
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.
