St. Olaf Choir At Washington Pavillion
The Washington Pavilion hosts the St. Olaf Choir on January 26 at 3:00 p.m.
The St. Olaf Choir , with 75 mixed voices, is the pioneer a cappella choir in the United States. For over a century, the choir has set a standard of choral excellence and remained at the forefront of choral artistry. Conducted since 1990 by Anton Armstrong, the St. Olaf Choir continues to develop the tradition that originated with its founder, F. Melius Christiansen.
Since its founding in 1912, the St. Olaf Choir has set a standard in the choral art, serving as a model for choirs of all levels. The ensemble’s annual tour brings its artistry and message to thousands of people across the nation and around the world.
In addition to being an artistic force, the St. Olaf Choir’s mission is to provide music of the highest quality that lifts people’s hearts and spirits, incorporating a diversity of voices and cultural traditions into the chorus of the Christian faith. Many people experience this message through the annual St. Olaf Christmas Festival as seen on Public Television and the 2007 and 2011 movie theater simulcasts.
