The internationally-known Concordia Choir that sang to a packed audience here several years ago is coming to Calvary Lutheran Church for a return engagement Saturday evening, March 3.

The 72-voice a cappella group – made up of students from Concordia College in Moorhead, Minn. – is on a 17-city tour that will take it through Minnesota, Colorado, Arizona, New Mexico and California.

Since it was formed in 1920, different variations of the choir have sung in major halls throughout the United States and Europe. It recently released a recording with the Grammy Award-winning King’s Singers, and it has performed several times with Garrison Keillor.

The group will sing spirituals and hymns during its 2012 tour, which will include stops March 4 in Palm Desert, March 6 in Thousand Oaks and March 7 in San Luis Obispo. The only local concert will be held March 3 at 7:30 p.m. at Calvary, 424 Via de la Valle.

Tickets are $20 for adults and $10 for students and can be purchased online at www.ConcordiaTickets.com or by calling (800) 838-3006. They will also be sold at the door.

Renowned composer René Clausen will conduct the choir. He has written more than 100 commissioned compositions for ensembles around the world including the Mormon Tabernacle Choir. On the 10th anniversary of the 9/11 national tragedy, he conducted his composition “MEMORIAL” in Lincoln Center, New York City.

Concordia College is a four-year liberal arts college of the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America. It offers more than 60 majors, including 18 honors majors and 12 pre-professional programs.
