National Lutheran ChoirThe award-winning National Lutheran Choir from Minneapolis-St. Paul will present a Hymn Festival at 3 p.m. Sunday, Feb. 22, at La Casa de Cristo Lutheran Church, Scottsdale.

Local choirs are invited to join the 62-voice NLC for an afternoon of hymns of faith and choir anthems.

The ensemble presents a wide range of choral works in concert and worship settings, leads workshops in choral techniques, hymnody and liturgy, commissions and publishes new compositions, and broadcasts and records extensively. The choir was founded in 1986 by Dr. Larry Fleming.

The National Lutheran Choir was the recipient of the 2007 Margaret Hillis Award for Choral Excellence from Chorus America and the 2007 Wittenberg Award from the Luther Institute.

Tickets are $15, available at or at the door starting at 2 p.m. For more information, call the church at 480-948-1234.
