Lux Singers:

Lux Singers is an elite religious choral organization under the direction of Mr Leland Spindler. Lux (sounds like Luke's) consists of 4 different ensembles: Lux Singers, Lux Men's Chorus, Lux Women's Chorus, an Lux Children's Chorus. Each member is dedicated both to the choral arts and to his or her own religious faith and congregation.  ‘Harmony Perfected’ is the motto by which the Lux Singers Organization operates, seeking to share the majesty and versatility of the human voice.

Mr Spindler has been working with religious ensembles for nearly 20 years. At a very young age, he began conducting his own congregation’s choir in Eugene, OR. Later, whilst living in southern France, Mr. Spindler began an interfaith choir that toured many of the great religious spaces in the region. Upon his return to the United States, he continued his tradition of bringing fine religious choral music to the congregants of various denominations. Mr. Spindler has a great passion for the religious tradition of choral music and its role throughout history. He is a spitfire conductor who does not accept mediocrity from his choir members, and it shows in his performances.
