Primarily comprised of first-year tenors and basses, the ensemble participates in a wide variety of events both on and off-campus
"Singers and conductor-educators exist symbiotically as equal and indistinguishable partners in the learning process, building relationships of mutual trust, respect, and vulnerability. These relationships help us perform with shared integrity and intent, and remind us that music isn't music without the humanity that conceives, creates, concertizes, and consumes it."
Norskkor is one of five auditioned choral ensembles at Luther College and is conducted by Mark Potvin. Established in 1981, the group is primarily comprised of first-year tenors and basses, selected each fall and spring by audition. The ensemble participates in worship services, performs at the Family Weekend concert, participates in Christmas at Luther and Dorian Vocal Festival, and presents an annual spring concert with Aurora, Luther's choral ensemble for sopranos and altos. 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.
Norskkor 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. Norskkor is featured on annual Christmas at Luther recordings which are available through the Luther College Book Shop.
Norskkor rehearses MWF from 1:30 to 2:30 p.m. The rehearsal location for Norskkor is in the Jenson-Noble Hall of Music Choir Room.
