LutheranArts Reformation Hymn Festival
Sunday, July 9, 4:00 p.m., Central Lutheran Church
LutheranArts is sponsoring a festival worship to honor the 500th Anniversary of the Protestant Reformation. The newly commissioned Martin Luther Reformation Hymns and Anthems will be premiered. Imaginations will be sparked by poetry, liturgical dance, puppetry of the visual arts, and world music.
National Lutheran Choir Concert
Saturday, July 15, 8 p.m., Central Lutheran Choir
Building on the theme of the Triennial Gathering, the National Lutheran Choir offers a unique program of renewal and reformation at Central Lutheran Church. Hymns by women authors, translators and composers, ancient and modern, catalyze the evening–that of living in Reformation–grounded in our embrace of the past, moving through the present day and into the future. Tickets are $25 plus a $5 registration fee and can be purchased online. To add tickets to your current registration, click on the “modify registration” button.

Norwegian composer Kim André Arnesen has been commissioned to write this significant new work.
On Saturday afternoon, the festival will conclude with a worship service at Central Lutheran Church in Minneapolis. Presiding Bishop Elizabeth Eaton will preach and local church choirs will sing. More information and registration>
