COMING TO A THEATER NEAR YOU!
The 100th St. Olaf Christmas Festival will be simulcast live in movie theaters across the nation.
The St. Olaf Christmas Festival is one of the oldest musical celebrations of Christmas in the United States. Started in 1912 by F. Melius Christiansen, founder of the St. Olaf College Music Department, the festival features more than 500 student musicians who are members of five choirs and the St. Olaf Orchestra.
Participating choral ensembles include the St. Olaf Choir, conducted by Anton Armstrong '78; Viking Chorus and Chapel Choir, both conducted by Christopher Aspaas '95; Cantorei, conducted by John Ferguson; and Manitou Singers, conducted by Sigrid Johnson. The St. Olaf Orchestra is conducted by Steven Amundson. Each group performs individually and as part of a mass ensemble.
This year, to celebrate the 100th anniversary of the festival, the college is simulcasting the festival in various theaters across the nation. For more details about theater locations and corresponding events, visit http://www.stolaf.edu/simulcast/
