Lux is very excited to announce that we will be a featured ensemble in Music, Gettysburg!'s Christmas Offering concert on Dec. 16 at 7pm! Music, Gettysburg! is a premier concert series featuring international, regional and local musical artists for the greater south central Pennsylvania region. Lux will perform some pieces alone, and some alongside the Gettysburg Children's Choir and High School Chorale and artistic director Dr. Brent Talbot, with whom soprano Eby Buscher is an intern, following Robby Napoli, who worked with Dr. Talbot and the children's choir just last year.
On the program, Lux will perform Paul Mealor's A Spotless Rose, which can be heard on our most recent album, and Morten Lauridsen's O Magnum Mysterium, as well as performing Daniel Elder's Elegy with the High School Chorale. To round out the program, Lux will join the Gettysburg Children's Choir on two more pieces: Nos Galan by Frank Ferko, and a newly commissioned piece specifically for the occasion. Between the event, the repertoire, and the performers, this will surely prove to be an especially exciting collaboration!
The concert is free and open to the public, and will be held on December 16, 2018, at 7pm at the United Lutheran Seminary Chapel, at 147 Seminary Ridge, Gettysburg, PA. For more information, click the button below.
As we begin to close out our season, we'd like to extend our thanks to Christ Lutheran Church in Gettysburg, PA, Gettysburg College, and our entire audience last Sunday. What a wonderful way to end our season! Audience members traveled from as far as Washington, D.C. to gather for a wonderful afternoon of music, and for the final performance of our Journey of Life program. We hope you enjoyed experiencing it as much as we did performing it! Enjoy some photos from the day captured by our own singers below:
Last weekend, we continued our goodbyes by watching as Hannah left town from her administrative internship at the Washington National Cathedral in Washington, D.C. She enjoyed her time in the Nation's capital thoroughly, and hopes to come back in the near future. While she goes back to her home in New Jersey now, we can't wait to see her again for our concert in Gettysburg. Below you'll find a slideshow of a few pictures from her internship. Thanks for a wonderful season, and see you soon, Hannah!

A few days ago, we posted on our social media that big news was coming soon, and now it's here! On June 17 (the day of our concert!), we'll be releasing our second album, Now Ye Heavenly Powers. Including some of our favorite recordings from the last two seasons, you'll be getting twice the music as our last release (and twice the rumbly notes, too!). First dibs go to our audience this Sunday, so be sure to mark your calendars and be there for the release, which feature some of this generation's most talented composers, and some classics from the choral repertoire you're sure to enjoy. See you Sunday!
The beginning of our summer season is coming right around the corner, and we are delighted to announce to you our first performance of the season.
Join us on Sunday, June 17, at 6pm, as we present A Journey of Life, featuring works by Tavener, Barber, Trent Reznor, Dave Matthews, Whitacre, Mealor, Lang, Forrest, and others. Follow our protagonist from birth, to marriage, to the bitter end - joy, tragedy, love, loss, life, death. Admission is free, though voluntary donations are much appreciated. See what people are saying, and add it to your calendar by clicking the "Facebook Event" button below. For more information, click "Get Tickets" button.
