Concordia University Ann Arbor’s annual Music Festival for Lutheran Schools, taking place today, February 27, is spotlighting and honing the abilities of middle school musicians.

Today, February 27 the annual Lutheran Music Festival is taking place on CUAA’s campus where 11 middle schools from around Michigan and surrounding states are competing.

Ensembles stand prepared to exhibit their talents and undergo assessments from experienced clinicians at the festival. Organized once again by the Lutheran Schools Music Committee, the event sprawls across CUAA’s campus at 4090 Geddes Road, featuring performances in various locations: choirs in the Chapel of the Holy Trinity, bands in the Black Box Theatre, and handbells in the Gymnasium

The 11 participating schools this year are: Guardian Lutheran, DearbornOur Savior Lutheran, HartlandOur Savior Lutheran, LansingSt. Paul Lutheran, Ann ArborSt. John Lutheran, FraserSt. Michael Lutheran, WayneShepherd of the Lakes Lutheran, BrightonSt. Paul Lutheran, NapoleonSt. Paul Lutheran, Royal OakTrinity Lutheran, Jackson and Trinity Lutheran, Toledo.

Lutheran Schools Music Festival was always something to look forward to as a middle schooler. The highlight of the event was getting to sing in the Chapel of the Holy Trinity—a beautiful place not only to perform, but to worship as well. I have known since then that CUAA was the place for me. I couldn’t imagine a better place to further my education and my faith in Christ.
