The Lutheran Choir of Chicago is a unique sacred choral ensemble with a rich spiritual tradition and an ever-expanding repertoire. For more than fifty years,our classic a cappella style has enlightened, educated and entertained the people of Chicago and the world.
LCC was founded in 1947 as part of the centennial celebration of the Lutheran Church Missouri Synod. What began as a celebration is now a select group of performers ranging from different spiritual backgrounds who share a common desire to make a joyful noise.
Whether performing from the chancel or from center stage, the Lutheran Choir of Chicago presents a wide range of styles and compositions with a spirit that is contagious. From Bach to Brahms to contemporary song, LCC is a popular group at places of worship, music festivals, civic events, concert halls, and on radio and television programs. LCC reaches out to people everywhere with musical reflections of our shared human experience.
LCC offers an opportunity for educational and technical growth. We sponsor choral festivals and clinics. We have commissioned and premiered original compositions. Members are encouraged to attend specialized performance clinics and master classes. Individual instruction in vocal technique is a benefit of membership.
LCC is committed to exploring the full universe of creative vocal expression by pursuing unique artistic challenges. We seek to blend vocal talent with an array of creative disciplines, including instrumentalists, dance, theatre troups and other choirs. We have produced several CDs and videos for public broadcast.
LCC toured Scandinavia in 1998, and in 2000 we toured Austria, Slovakia and Hungary.
