  • The Concordia Seminary Chorus, which includes the Advent Tour group, is composed of about 60 seminarians who commit to balancing full course loads with weekly rehearsals and special tour rehearsals.

    Conducted by Rev. Henry Gerike, the chorus has produced 10 recordings, including its latest, “Safe in God’s Faithfulness,” which includes two newly commissioned pieces for male voices and viola: John Eggert’s setting of “No Saint on Earth Lives Life to Self Alone” and Jonathan Korh’s setting of “Shine in Our Hearts.”
