MN All-State
Lutheran Choir
Founded in 1969 by Mark Aamot, the Minnesota
All-State Lutheran Choir (MASLC), is currently
under the direction of Dr. Thomas D. Rossin.
During its 40 plus years, the choir has grown to
include over 1,450 alumni who have shared sacred
music and Christian witness in approximately 150
churches throughout the state.
In June, the 45 – 60 voice
choir assembles at
beautiful Mt. Carmel Camp
near Alexandria. There, in
seclusion, the singers
participate in eight days of
rehearsal, Bible study and
discussion concerning the
meaning of the texts they
will be singing on the tour.
The program has two main goals
The first is to provide young people with a
spiritually aesthetic experience.
Rehearsals are the main activity of the camp, and it is through
these rehearsals, the related devotions, and small group
discussions that the students grow in their personal faith.
The belief that the sensitivity and language of music
can foster such an atmosphere for growth has been proven
beyond our greatest expectations.
The camp, however, is only the beginning…
The concert tour which follows (the
second goal) provides the
realization of that faith-building
The enthusiasm for church music
is transferred from the choir to
the congregations visited on tour.
The choir hopes to convey to
congregations the joy of
involvement in music during worship.
The Tour
The choir gets to travel all
throughout the state of MN
performing concerts each
night, sharing the Word of God
through music.
While concerts are the main
goal of tour, there is plenty of
time for fun and service.
