2023 St. Olaf Band Winter Tour
Founded in 1891, The St. Olaf Band, dubbed “one of America’s preeminent bands” by The New Yorker, will perform in Illinois, Minnesota and Wisconsin on its 2021 national tour. The St. Olaf Band performs the very best compositions and transcriptions for symphonic band, producing an exciting, crowd-pleasing style.
Dr. Timothy Mahr ’78 has conducted the St. Olaf Band since 1994, and is set to retire next spring. We hope you’ll join us on his final domestic tour! The 2023 program is titled “URGENT VOICES” which highlights music that contains important and hopeful messages. Two clarinet soloists will be featured, along with two student conductors, and the repertoire will also include pieces by Aaron Copland, Jonathan Bailey Holland, Jodie Blackshaw, Timothy Mahr, David Maslanka, and more.
More information on the history of the band.
Three of the concerts are free and open to the public. Where charged, concerts are $10 for adults and still free for students.
