The Augustana Choir will perform in concert at Carnegie Hall on Sunday, March 29, at 8:30 p.m. with 300 singers from around the country.

The Choir will arrive in New York two days prior to the concert for rehearsal with other selected choirs to prepare for the concert.

"It's my second opportunity to conduct there and my third chance to actually be in the building and it's a stunning hall. Beautiful acoustics, gorgeous visually and it's going to be really exciting. The students are really excited about the opportunity," said Dr. Paul Nesheim, director of The Augustana Choir.

Nesheim will direct The Augustana Choir along with other selected choirs and the New England Symphonic Ensemble in Mozart’s Missa Brevis in C major, K.220.
