The Grand View University Choir of Des Moines will present a concert at St. John's Lutheran Church in Guttenberg this Saturday, March 19, at 5:30 p.m. (Photo submitted)

The Grand View University Choir from Des Moines will perform at St. John’s Lutheran Church on Saturday, March 19, at 5:30 p.m. as part of its ten-day 2016 spring tour through Iowa, Minnesota, Wisconsin, Michigan, and Indiana.  

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; Kansas State University, and the University of Chicago, where she earned her Ph.D. in musicology.

Grand View University, with a student body of approximately 2,200, is a four-year, liberal arts university of the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America.
