MN All-State Lutheran Choir
Founded in 1969 by Mark Aamot, the Minnesota All-State Lutheran Choir (MASLC), is currently under the direction of Dr. Thomas D. Rossin. During its 40 plus years, the choir has grown to include over 1,450 alumni who have shared sacred music and Christian witness in approximately 150 churches throughout the state. MASLC FOUNDATION
In June, the 45 – 60 voice choir assembles at beautiful Mt. Carmel Camp near Alexandria. There, in seclusion, the singers participate in eight days of rehearsal, Bible study and discussion concerning the meaning of the texts they will be singing on the tour. THE MASLC CAMP
The first is to provide young people with a spiritually aesthetic experience. Rehearsals are the main activity of the camp, and it is through these rehearsals, the related devotions, and small group discussions that the students grow in their personal faith. The belief that the sensitivity and language of music can foster such an atmosphere for growth has been proven beyond our greatest expectations. The camp, however, is only the beginning… The program has two main goals
The concert tour which follows (the second goal) provides the realization of that faith-building experience. The enthusiasm for church music is transferred from the choir to the congregations visited on tour. The choir hopes to convey to congregations the joy of involvement in music during worship.
The Tour The choir gets to travel all throughout the state of MN performing concerts each night, sharing the Word of God through music. While concerts are the main goal of tour, there is plenty of time for fun and service.
