St. Olaf Christmas Festival Special Program

On the first full weekend in December each year, more than 15,000 people come to St. Olaf College, the home of Sing For Joy, to experience traditional Scandinavian meals, atmosphere and fellowship — and to attend the St. Olaf Christmas Festival concerts.

Each year, Sing For Joy is proud to present a special radio presentation of the festival. For many thousands, the annual broadcast of the festival on radio stations across the U.S. has become a part of their Christmas observance.

The festival features splendid music of the season, performed by the St. Olaf Choir, the Chapel Choir, the Manitou Singers, the Cantorei, the Viking Chorus and the St. Olaf Orchestra, separately and as a massed ensemble. In all, more than 500 student musicians take part.

And On Earth Peace is the theme of this year's presentation, recorded in December of 2015. Artistic Director of the Festival is Dr. Anton Armstrong, conductor of the St. Olaf Choir. Sing For Joy host Pastor Bruce Benson is narrator for this radio broadcast.
