Lutheran schools students to perform April 21

Hundreds of students from Lutheran schools in the Fort Wayne area will converge for an Easter-season concert at Concordia Lutheran High School on Sunday, April 21, at 2 p.m. Free and open to the public, the concert will include combined bands, several choirs, orchestra, and a string ensemble.Dianne Moellering, band director at Concordia Lutheran High School, and her colleagues instruct band and string programs at most of the schools in The Lutheran Schools Partnership, the organization promoting The Lutheran Schools in northeast Indiana. Intermediate and advanced band students from these partner schools will join forces for this concert. “Although we have other performances throughout the year, this concert is a unique opportunity to share the good things happening in Lutheran schools music education with an even larger audience, and the concert gives students another opportunity to shine,” Moellering says.Choirs from several Lutheran schools will also sing as part of the concert. Although a different venue and setting than as in the choirs' usual role as musical leaders in their congregations' worship services, the concert will provide students a valuable occasion to proclaim the Gospel.“It’s appropriate that this concert is in the midst of the Easter season,” says Mark Muehl, director of The Lutheran Schools Partnership. “As Lutherans, we confess Christ as our crucified and risen savior, and the music of the Church, celebrated and taught in Lutheran schools, does just that.” For more information, contact The Lutheran Schools Partnership at (260) 241-4845.
