National Lutheran Schools Week (NLSW) is Jan. 26–Feb. 1. To mark the week, The Lutheran Church—Missouri Synod (LCMS) will be welcoming groups from St. Louis-area LCMS schools to provide special music for chapel each day, Jan. 27–31, at the LCMS International Center (IC) in St. Louis.
On Thursday, Jan. 30, the school groups will be joined by The American Kantorei of St. Louis, directed by Dr. Maurice Boyer. The American Kantorei is a chorus and orchestra dedicated to presenting the music of J.S. Bach in performances accessible to all audiences.
Daily chapel at the IC is broadcast live at 10 a.m. Central time, Monday through Friday, on Worldwide KFUO (kfuo.org). An overview of the NLSW schedule, preachers and musical guests is provided below. Tune in and help celebrate NLSW!
