St. Olaf Band Spring Concert
April 7, 2019 @ 3:30 pm - 5:30 pm
The St. Olaf Band, conducted by Timothy Mahr ’78, presents a spring concert with the culminating event of the Jodie Blackshaw Residency. The band performed her music on its tour of Australia and New Zealand in 2018 and worked with her while there. The St. Olaf Band Endowment funded participation in the commissioning of her first symphony.
Founded in 1891, the St. Olaf Band is the oldest music organization at St. Olaf College, a campus internationally renowned for its high caliber of music ensembles. The band has toured nationally since 1904 and internationally since 1906, when it performed a four-week, 30-concert tour of Norway, making it the first American collegiate band to tour Europe. The band has subsequently toured several times in Norway, Great Britain, Japan, central Europe, and in 2018, Australia and New Zealand.
