Music Director: Andrea Sorum

Andrea half-jokingly notes that she was “born to two rural pastors and an upright piano.” She began playing organ by the time she was 16 (taking lessons at Luther College and playing for the weekly services in the rural congregation near her hometown), this background allows her to be well-versed in traditional organ music and Lutheran hymnody. Andrea attended Concordia College in Moorhead where she was a vocal and piano double major and sang under the direction of Renee Clausen. Andrea spent time in India working for a non-profit and created a fusion album. In moving to the Twin Cities, Andrea became involved with the Community of St. Martin and with Our Saviour’s Lutheran Church, where she worked with global and world music. She served as Music Director at Family of Christ Lutheran Church in Lakeville, Minnesota, and developed the choir, bell choir, and a youth band. Most recently Andrea has served as organist and accompanist at Mt. Olivet Lutheran Church in Plymouth.

Andrea is a folk singer and performs solo and as part of a band that plays in the Twin Cities and around the region. She writes, “I am an advocate for merging secular and spiritual communities in meaningful ways, and music is a natural intersection.” Two of her (s)heroes in this genre are Jewel and Joani Mitchell.
