Zion Concert Series

Luther Community Choir
Part of the Luther Quincentennial Celebration at Zion Lutheran

Concert on Sunday, September 24th at 4 p.m.
Free Admission


Zion Lutheran Church (Ann Arbor, MI) will be hosting a Luther Community Choir event, in which all SE Michigan Synod congregations and community members are invited to sing and celebrate the 500th anniversary of the Reformation through song. All singers are welcome to participate in this synod-wide event. Our guest conductor will be choral conductor and award-winning composer Dr. Zebulon Highben who will lead us through many different styles of choral music relevant to the themes of the Reformation. Zion Lutheran has commissioned Dr. Highben to compose a choral piece for the 500th anniversary, and the choir will premiere the composition at the concert.

The Luther Community Choir Event Schedule is as follows (all events at Zion Lutheran 1501 W. Liberty St. Ann Arbor, MI):

Friday, September 22nd – Welcome and Evening Rehearsal with Dr. Highben (time TBD)

Saturday, September 23rd – Morning Rehearsal, Lunch on your own in Ann Arbor, Afternoon rehearsal

Dr. Zebulon M. Highben

Sunday, September 24th– Rehearsal before the concert (time TBD), Concert at 4 p.m. Free admission.

Music will be given out over the summer to all singers who register. Please register by June 30th, so we can plan on how much music to have available. There is no fee for the music. Rehearsals will be offered in the summer for those in the Ann Arbor area on Thursdays from 7-8 p.m. Those who wish to rehearse on their own may do so, but it will be expected that all notes are learned in preparation for the September rehearsals.

If you would like to register your church choir or individuals for this event, please contact Natalie Emptage Downs, Director of Choirs and Special Music at Zion Lutheran: ndowns@zlc-aa.org  or (734) 994-4455.

We hope that you will join us for this special synod-wide music event as we lift praises up to God in song and celebrate our Reformation history and faith.
