Choral conducting faculty member Dominick DiOrio recently had the chance to conduct one of his original works for a gathering of hundreds of members of the Association of Lutheran Development Executives (ALDE) on February 10, 2013.
The Valparaiso University Kantorei, under the direction of Dr. Lorraine Brugh, was the featured ensemble at the Sunday morning worship service at the Indianapolis conference. In addition to other works by contemporary composers, the Kantorei sang DiOrio’s a cappella anthem “Peace, I leave with you”. DiOrio guest conducted the work at the conference.
Founded in 1979, the Association of Lutheran Development Executives (ALDE) is one of the nation’s leading organizations of Christian development executives. The membership consists of more than 700 professionals in the areas of fundraising and communications.
