Please click here for further information.
It with great sadness that I share with you that our dear colleague Weston Noble died yesterday afternoon at the age of 94. Mr. Noble was the famed conductor of the Luther College Nordic Choir for 57 years, retiring in 2005. He was a charter member of ACDA, and an unwavering supporter of ICDA and all that it represented. There was no one else like him. We rejoice and are grateful for the incredible impact he made on choral music in Iowa, the United States, and beyond.
It is comforting to see the numerous tributes on social media from choral directors, singers, and others who were touched by the infectious spirit of this man. He affected lives beyond Luther College and the Midwest, and beyond those who were musicians. We will never truly know the impact of this legend.
Here is a short video that captures what made Weston Noble so special to all of us.
