Paul Manz Hymn Festival
“Poet, Prophet, Priest: Living the Call”
Sunday, February 24, 2019; 4 p.m.
A Hymn Festival Honoring the Life and Ministry of Paul Manz, led by David Cherwien, Dr. Paul Westermeyer, and The Augustana Choir. Part of the Lankford Arts Series: The Art of Faith.
2019 marks what would have been the 100th birthday of Lutheran organist Paul Manz. Dr. Manz served for many years as Cantor/Director of Music and organist at Mount Olive Lutheran Church in Minneapolis and St. Luke’s Lutheran Church in Chicago. Throughout his life, Paul Manz was known around the country for his leading of hymn festivals, as he inspired congregations to sing together in creative ways using the organ and improvisation as the primary vehicle for musical expression.
To help celebrate this milestone, you are invited to join the Sioux Falls community, along with the Augustana Choir, organist David Cherwien and theologian Paul Westermeyer in singing the faith! A reception for organist David Cherwien and Dr. Westermeyer will follow.
Join us in singing together! Hymns include:
“Built on a Rock”
“God of Grace and God of Glory”
“God, Who Stretched the Spangled Heavens”
“Lord, Keep Us Steadfast in Your Word”
“Lord, Thee I Love with All My Heart”
A limited number of free tickets are available.
