Norsemen is one of six auditioned choral ensembles at Luther College and is conducted by Mark Potvin. Established in 1981, the group is comprised of first-year men, selected each fall and spring by audition. The ensemble performs in worship services on and off-campus, participates in the annual Christmas at Luther concert and Dorian Vocal Festival, and presents an annual spring concert with Aurora, Luther's choral ensemble for first-year women. The choir has also participated in Luther College performances of major choral/orchestral works, such as Beethoven's Mass in C major and Bach's The Passion According to St. John.
Norsemen has performed at North Central American Choral Directors Association conferences and has been the guest of the Great Northern Union at the Collegiate Men's Choral Festival in St. Paul, Minn. Norsemen are featured on annual Christmas at Luther recordings which are available through the Luther College Book Shop.
Norsemen rehearses MWF from 1:30 to 2:30 p.m. in the Noble Recital Hall.
