OUR 2022-2023 CONCERT SEASON

OUR 2023-2024 CONCERT SCHEDULE

The Lutheran Chorale had a successful concert season in 2022-2023.  Now we look forward to another full concert season starting this fall, through spring of 2024.

SATURDAY WORKSHOP - MARCH 9, 2024

The Lutheran Chorale occasionally holds a Workshop on the Saturday morning prior to our Spring Concerts -- in this case, March 9, from 8:30 am until noon, at Abiding Hope Church, the location of our 2:30 concert on Sunday, March 10.  This workshop is open to anyone and everyone who likes to sing and wants to have a bit of extra instruction with an Emphasis on Voice Development: Voice Health, Voice Production and Sight-Reading Techniques. This is also our rehearsal time for the concerts for the next day, and you will be invited to join the Chorale to sing a couple of selections with us during the actual concerts on Sunday.  There will be a continental breakfast at 8:30, and the workshop begins at 9:00am.

The workshop will be taught by David and Jonathan Hodel, our directors. You will have a choice of two workshops to attend.

David Hodel, Music Director & Conductor received his Bachelor of Music Degree from Valparaiso University with an emphasis in voice and conducting.  In 2022 he achieved his master’s in education, with an emphasis in science from Relay.  His experience includes singing and acting in musicals, directing school and church choirs, and directing The Lutheran Chorale since 2010.

Jonathan Hodel, Associate Conductor,  conducted the Chorale in 2016 for their 40th anniversary.  Since that time, Dr. Hodel has been active as an associate conductor, helping choose concert repertoire, developing concerts. Dr. Hodel attended Valparaiso University and holds advanced degrees from Indiana University and The University of Iowa in choral conducting and voice.  He is a tenor soloist and has performed multiple opera roles and concerts with opera companies, orchestras, and choirs in the United States and in Europe.

COLORADO ROCKIES and THE 2023-2024 SEASON

GREETINGS!...

...to all of our friends and supporters of The Lutheran Chorale.

We began our fall season with the opportunity to sing the Star Spangled Banner at the Colorado Rockies baseball game on August 20.  This is becoming a regular gig, and we love being out there supporting the Rockies!

Our season is flying by quickly, after a beautiful and successful "Here I Stand" Reformation themed concert in October, and our recent Christmas Concert - "Welcome Joyous Season - on December 3", we begin our rehearsals for our Spring Concert on March 10.  We hope you are able to attend and enjoy all of our concerts this year!
