St Olaf Band At Carnegie Hall

St. Olaf Festival of Bands

Join the Band!


The St. Olaf Festival of Bands always promises to be a stimulating day for students and teachers alike. Culminating an exciting and intense day of rehearsals will be performances by the Festival Band, the St. Olaf Band, and the Norseman Band. The Festival of Bands enjoys a long, successful history of bringing together outstanding high school musicians to prepare and share a program with nationally known artists. 

Important Note: Unfortunately, St. Olaf College will be unable to offer the Festival of Bands  this year. We simply cannot host an event that large, that involves so many people visiting campus, in a way that adheres to our commitment to mitigating the spread of COVID-19 and protecting the health of our students. St. Olaf will be providing updates to our constituents and partners as plans for the future continue to develop. We deeply regret the impact these circumstances have on our local high school students and educators, but look forward to welcoming you back to our campus when it is safe to do so. We wish you and your students all the best this coming year!
