John Phillip Zehnder

The Lutheran Wind Ensemble honors the life, talent, and service of our founding director, John Phillip Zehnder, who is now with his Savior after an illness. His energy, dedication, and belief in music education inspired him to found the Lutheran Wind Ensemble, which brings instrumental music to churches and events, in addition to finanical support of music education in the Lutheran school system. John's humor, talent, and friendship will be missed by all.
