Professor of Music Dr. Timothy Peter conducts the Collegiate Chorale, a 90-voice select Junior-Senior choral ensemble and Luther’s first-year 90-voice men’s choir, Norsemen. After growing up on a farm in Minnesota, Peter received his undergraduate degree from Luther College, working with Weston Noble and completed the degree of Doctorate of Musical Arts from the University of Arizona, under the direction of Dr. Maurice Skones.
Dr. Peter has been the state and divisional Repertoire and Standards chair for College and University Choirs for the American Choral Directors Association. His choirs have been selected to perform at three Divisional NC-ACDA conventions held in Minneapolis, Minn., Sioux Falls, S.D., and Madison, Wis. His off-campus teaching, adjudicating, and conducting includes numerous appearances as a convention presenter, festival clinician, and all-state conductor in Alaska, Arizona, California, Colorado, Georgia, Illinois, Iowa, Minnesota, Missouri, Nebraska, Nevada, New York, North Dakota, Oklahoma, South Dakota, Texas, Virginia, and Wisconsin. He has prepared choirs and orchestras for performances at Orchestra Hall in Minneapolis, Orchestra Hall and Rockefeller Chapel in Chicago, the Georgia Dome in Atlanta, the TWA Center in St. Louis, Overture Center for the Arts in Madison, the Alamodome in San Antonio, the Seoul Foreign School Center for the Performing Arts, and Carnegie Hall in New York City. He has conducted in Germany, Namibia (Africa), Oman (Middle-East), South Africa, and South Korea.
After 20 years at Luther College, Dr. Timothy Peter '86 will be leaving the college this summer to assume the position of director of choral activities and professor of music at Stetson University in DeLand, Florida.
We hope that alumni, parents and friends will come out to enjoy music from Luther, and to bid farewell to a dedicated conductor, colleague, teacher and friend.
A freewill offering will be taken at the concert.
