Band and orchestra touring over spring break

Clarinet player and violin players in concert

The Bethany Lutheran College Concert Band and Chamber Orchestra, under the direction of Professor Benjamin Faugstad, is excited to perform fourteen concerts in Minnesota, Wisconsin, and Illinois.

The Chamber Orchestra tour, March 6–8, will feature exciting selections from Bach, Grieg, Mozart, and Mahler. A recent work, Invicta, highlights violinist Madeline Halvorson, and a Bach Aria will showcase vocalist Kayelynn Lawson.

The Concert Band’s “World Music Tour,” March 9–13, will take you on a musical journey to four different continents through The Trombone King, Sólas Ané, The Ocean of Fire, and Great Wall. Sophomore music major, Tamara Omar, conducts the ensemble for a couple of selections, and the ensemble closes with a newly composed selection, The Mandalorian. A free-will donation will be available at select locations to help support their tours.
