Join the St. Olaf Choir, conducted by Anton Armstrong, during their 2020 East Coast tour. The St. Olaf Choir, with 75 mixed voices, is one of the premier a cappella choirs in the United States, and for more than a century has set the standard of choral excellence and remained at the forefront of choral artistry.

The 2020 St. Olaf Choir tour marks the 100th anniversary of the choir’s first East Coast tour in 1920 (which included their first performance at Carnegie Hall), along with Dr. Armstrong’s 30th anniversary of leading the ensemble. During this past century, touring has played an important role in the St. Olaf Choir sharing its artistry and beauty of sound with audiences around the world. This year, the St. Olaf Choir has adjusted its ticket pricing structure to promote greater accessibility, including $10 tickets for all students. Tickets are available at stolaf.edu/tickets and 800-363-5487.
