2018 Fall Tour Overview

Founded in 1891, The St. Olaf Band, dubbed “one of America’s preeminent bands” by The New Yorker, will perform in the Midwest on its 2018 national tour, including stops in Wisconsin, Illinois, and Chicago. The St. Olaf Band performs the very best compositions and transcriptions for symphonic band, producing an exciting, crowd-pleasing style. Included on this year’s tour program will be Dr. Mahr’s Symphony No. 1, which received its world premiere in 2016. More information on the history of the band.
