Molly Goltl performs across Nebraska with Concordia’s premier instrumental ensemble
Molly Goltl, a sophomore alto saxophonist and member of The Concordia University, Nebraska University Symphonic Band will perform for the students, faculty and staff at four Lutheran high schools, as well as for the community in Seward, Nebraska. The concerts will take place in mid-February. The performance at St. John Lutheran Church in Seward, Nebraska, is free and open to the public on Feb. 21, 2016, at 3 p.m.
“We are excited to perform for the Seward and surrounding communities again this spring and to connect with the students at all four of our partner high schools in Nebraska,” said Concordia’s Assistant Professor of Music Andrew Schultz. “This is a great opportunity for us to share the love of Jesus with high school students through music.”
Concordia’s partner schools in Nebraska are Lincoln Lutheran High School in Lincoln, Heartland Lutheran High School in Grand Island, Northeast Lutheran High School in Norfolk and Concordia High School in Omaha.
Schultz conducts the ensemble, which is open to all Concordia students by audition each year.
