Dr. David Mennicke to Deliver 2014 Poehler Lecture

Dr. David Mennicke, professor of music at Concordia University since 1989 and a recognized leader in the field of choral music, will deliver the annual Poehler Lecture on Faith and Learning. The title of Mennicke’s presentation is “When in our Music God is Glorified: Trinitarion Reflections on Music, Faith and Learning.” The event is scheduled for Thursday, March 20 at 7 p.m., in the Graebner Memorial Chapel.

The lecture, at which faculty members of note explore the connections they have made between the Christian faith and their academic disciplines through their careers, is in its 13th year and is named in honor of Concordia’s third President Willy August Poehler, who served the university in that capacity from 1946 through 1970.
