The internationally acclaimed Wartburg Choir under the direction of Dr. Lee Nelson will appear in concert at Holy Trinity Lutheran Church in Akron on Tuesday, April 24 at 7:30 pm. The concert, which is sponsored by Arts @ Holy Trinity, is open to the public, with free-will donations accepted.
Founded in 1937, the Wartburg Choir performs sacred music from all historical periods and styles and often features premiere works of contemporary composers, including Morten Lauridsen, Eriks Ešenvalds, Ola Gjeilo, René Clausen, Stacey V.
