The A Cappella Choir from Seward, Nebraska has toured the U.S. each year and internationally approximately every four years since its inception in 1939, performing throughout Europe, the Middle East, Australia, Asia, Mexico, and most recently South Africa. It also has participated in international choral festivals in Australia and Austria, placing first and third respectively while under the direction of Dr. von Kampen. The concert will feature the works of Tomas Luis da Victoria, Giacomo Puccini, Francis Poulenc, Norman Luboff, David von Kampen, Austin Theriot, Moses Hogan and others.
A free-will offering will be taken at evening concerts to help defray tour expenses.
“The A Cappella Choir strives to perform music at a high artistic level – music which inspires, instructs and entertains the listener,” said Dr. Kurt E. von Kampen, conductor. “But the mission of the choir goes beyond mere artistry. The University A Cappella Choir exists to proclaim the Gospel of Christ in song and to honor God with the musical talents the students have been given.”
