Founded 104 years ago by F. Melius Christiansen at St. Olaf College in Northfield, Minnesota, the St. Olaf Choir is internationally recognized as a creative force behind America’s a cappella tradition. Conducted by Dr. Anton Armstrong for 26 years, the choir presents a concert of sacred and secular choral repertoire. The St. Olaf Choir was one of the first to tour the nation regularly and performed on air when radio was in its infancy. The annual St. Olaf Christmas Festival has aired on radio and television for more than 30 years. In 2013, the PBS broadcast Christmas in Norway with the St. Olaf Choir received two Regional Emmy awards.
