Lenoir-Rhyne University will welcome Dr. Ryan Luhrs to campus this fall as the new Assistant Professor of Music and Director of Choral Activities. His duties officially begin August 1.
Luhrs will replace Dr. Paul Weber, who retired this past academic year after 20 years of service to LR. Weber served as Director of the Sacred Music Program, Professor of Church Music as well as Director of the A Cappella Choir, Chapel Choir, and College Singers. “He’s the right person for the position,” said Weber, when asked about the new hire. “I have enjoyed getting to know him. Ryan has a wonderful assortment of gifts that will benefit both the choral and sacred music programs. I could not be happier with the choice.”
