Wanted: Men Who Sing!

This is an open invitation to all area men who enjoy singing.  The Luren Singing Society of Decorah has begun rehearsing for the 150th consecutive year on September 11, 2017 in the vocal music room of Decorah High School, and if you are a male who enjoys singing you are invited to join us.  Our membership is composed of men from Decorah and the surrounding area.   We sing a wide variety of songs (yes, a few of them are in Norwegian and a variety of other languages), and we perform throughout the year.

No auditions are held – if you join Luren, you will sing.  Rehearsals are on Monday evenings from 7:30 pm until about 9:30 pm when we adjourn for treats, milk, and coffee.

2018 is a special year for Luren.  Not only will we celebrate our 150th birthday, but we will host the biennial Sangerfest of the Norwegian Singers Association of  America.  Singers from ten midwest choruses will gather in Decorah to rehearse, reminisce, and sing in a Grand Concert on June 2, 2018 at the CFL on the Luther College campus.

Come sing with us!  (If you are too busy to sing, you’re too busy!)

Singing continuously since 1868
