Join us for this time-honored tradition, featuring performances by two of Concordia’s premier vocal ensembles, Selah and Kammerchor.

Selah (meaning “stop and listen”) is an auditioned ensemble exploring a wide variety of both sacred and secular repertoire written for women’s voices.

Kammerchor (German for “chamber choir”) is an auditioned mixed voice ensemble that sings a wide variety of choral literature from the Renaissance to the present, including concert pieces, anthems, spirituals, and hymns.

“This concert holds special significance for me,” explained Dr. Alexa Doebele, professor of music and director of choral activities at Concordia University Wisconsin. “In addition to celebrating the Feast of Christ the King, this concert marks the 10th anniversary of Selah’s debut concert. In recognition of this anniversary, Selah’s final piece is one that was also sung at Selah’s first concert.”
