CONCERT PLANNED AT CONCORDIA SEMINARY IN MEMORY OF ROBERT BERGT

August 29, 2011

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

August 17, 2011

ST. LOUIS—A special concert is being planned in memory of Rev. Robert Bergt, the late conductor and music director of Bach at the Sem concerts and artist-in-residence at Concordia Seminary, St. Louis. The concert will take place on Sunday, September 25, 2011 at 3:00 p.m. in the Chapel of St. Timothy and St. Titus on the Seminary campus.

St. Louis musician and theologian, Robert Bergt, whose work and reputation are known around the world, died Tuesday, July 26, 2011 at the age of 81. He founded the American Kantorei in 1968, the first group of its kind in the United States. The Kantorei is a highly skilled choral and instrumental group that has performed in a variety of settings in St. Louis and beyond. Since 1993, the American Kantorei, under the direction of Robert Bergt, has performed regular concerts in the Bach at the Sem series in the chapel at Concordia Seminary in Clayton. The popular series of concerts featured the music of Johann Sebastian Bach and other sacred music composers and was open to the public at no charge. Also, many of these concerts were broadcast on KFUO-FM.

Dr. Dale A. Meyer, president of Concordia Seminary, will provide both an invocation and a message during the concert. The concert will feature pieces by J. S. Bach, many of which have been performed in past concerts, including Et Resurrexit and Cum Sancto Spiritu from the Mass in B Minor. The congregation will join the American Kantorei in singing “Let Us Ever Walk With Jesus.”

A small reception is being planned directly after the concert on the chapel plaza. For those who cannot attend the concert, it will be broadcast on KFUO (850 AM) and Classic99.com on October 2 at 1:00 p.m. CDT.  For more information, please call 314-505-7362.
