For many, music and St. Olaf College are practically synonymous. Nearly a third of all students participate in our world-class music ensembles, and between concerts and rehearsals, you’ll often hear music playing from somewhere on the Hill as you walk across campus. However, since Oles have returned to campus, making music at St. Olaf looks far different than it did before the pandemic hit in Spring 2020.
Thanks to stringent safety measures and the extraordinary efforts of our students, faculty, and staff, our music ensembles were able to resume rehearsing and recording in Fall 2020 — and we’re proud to share that music has continued on campus this spring. We look forward to presenting 10 new concert recordings online in April and May.
These fresh concert recordings of individual ensembles will be available on the St. Olaf website following their scheduled release date and time. Additionally, we are presenting three showcase concerts that demonstrate the breadth of talent from across our orchestras, bands, and choirs. All three showcase concerts will feature a live chat function so friends and family can come together and enjoy the work of these student musicians.
