DESCRIPTIONS


ALA Sundays

ALA Sundays take place during the normal Sunday service times at congregations around the state of Arizona.


Concerts

ALA's choirs, bands, small group ensembles, and individual instrumentalists perform a variety of music at each concert. The Fall and the Commencement Concerts are a mix of both sacred and secular music, while the Christmas and the Spring Concerts are sacred music of the church season. All concerts take place at ALA.
 

Choral Festival 2018

Our A Cappella choir attended the 2018 WELS West Regional Choral Festival from November 9-11, 2018, at Minnesota Valley Lutheran High School in New Ulm, MN.
Watch recorded concerts online here.

In addition to Choral Fest, our choir members and one other ALA student attended a Focus on Ministry day at Martin Luther College in New Ulm. A Cappella Choir was privileged to sing at Martin Luther College morning chapel (on Nov. 8).
