Martin Luther College Lyceum is a program that seeks to enrich the MLC family with quality performances which both educate and entertain. Even though these events are primarily for our campus family, the New Ulm community is also invited to some of them through ads in the New Ulm Journal. For the entire campus family they are FREE. For the community there is an admission fee.
Review the MLC Campus Calendar to see what is coming.

Lutheran Ceili Orchestra Concert
March 16, 8:00 pm
The Lutheran Ceili Orchestra was formed at St. Marcus Lutheran Church in Milwaukee. Traditionally it assembled there for an all-Irish service every March, around St. Patrick’s Sunday, to encourage awareness of the history of the Christian faith in ancient Ireland, as well as to introduce the rich Celtic tradition of fantastic hymns and riveting music. We are delighted to have them give a concert here at MLC on the eve of St. Patrick’s Day.
They have been favorites of MLC audiences for years, and we feel fortunate to be able to host them yet again this year.
