Thursday evening as Weston Noble was getting ready for bed at his home in Decorah, he felt faint and had a heart attack, according to Luther College officials.
He is in good spirits and will be spending the next days recovering and gaining back his strength.
Noble had a 57-year tenure as a conductor and teacher at Luther. He has received acclaim from across the country and the world as the conductor of the Luther College Nordic Choir from l948 to 2005, the Luther College Concert Band from l948 to l973, and as guest director for over 900 all-state bands, orchestras, choirs, and festivals across four continents.
