Join VocalEssence as we celebrate the dean of British choral composers, John Rutter. Known for his heart-warming melodies and lush harmonies, John’s world-famous Requiem, delightfully jazzy Birthday Madrigals, and other classics will fill Central Lutheran Church this March. Even though health issues prevent John from being with us in person, his voice will be heard loud and clear through comments direct from England.


“Music is unique among the arts because it communicates equally to head, heart, spirit and body. What matters most to me is that it should communicate on all these levels.” — John Rutter
