The title of the concert series comes from a desire to find something unique, to recognize our church’s German heritage, and to connect ourselves with a strong geographic landmark. This series includes a wide range of music, from brass ensemble and vocal solo to chamber orchestra and collegiate choir. If you would like to help with the concert series by being an usher, coordinating a reception, or working with advertisement, please contact Dr. Daniel Aune at [email protected] or call the church office.
