St. Olaf Festival of Bands

“Agua, Viento, y la Luz”  by Carl Holmquist will premiere at this year’s Festival of Bands. 

The 2018 St. Olaf Festival of Bands, to be held on November 10th, 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. There is no cost for students and their band directors to participate in our Festival of Bands, including lunch in our nationally-recognized Stav Cafeteria.
