Woodbury Lutheran Chorale, children's choirs, bells choirs, instrumentals, ensembles and a select guest choir from North Heights Lutheran Church, will perform original works by Shepperd, including a mass number for all groups.

Shepperd began his music career at the age of 18. He came to Woodbury Lutheran Church in 1990 after several years as the minister of music at North Heights. His responsibilities include all music for the sanctuary service, directing the Chorale, Praise Band and Celebration ensemble, and he is also the church organist.

An accomplished musician and arranger, he has written several commissioned pieces and dozens of his works have been released by Augsburg Fortress, Lorenz, MorningStar Music and other sacred music publishers.

A reservation-only dinner will be held at Mississippi Dunes at 6 p.m.
