In June the St. Olaf Choir embarked on a centennial tour that retraced part of the ensemble’s 1913 tour to Norway. This year the choir’s performances throughout Norway culminated in the filming of a new PBS Christmas program, Christmas in Norway with the St. Olaf Choir, at Trondheim’s Nidaros Cathedral. A 60-minute film, The 2013 St. Olaf Choir in Norway: The Documentary, takes viewers on-the-road with the choir. It will premiere on-campus during this year’s St. Olaf Christmas Festival, with two public showings in Tomson Hall 280: Saturday, December 7, 4 . Sunday, December 8, 12:45 . Fittingly, the tour ends with a Norwegian news (NRK) story about the Twin Cities Public Television (TPT) production of A St. Olaf Christmas in Norway that just wrapped in Trondheim’s Nidaros cathedral.

Founded in 1912, the St. Olaf Choir, with 75 mixed voices, is the pioneer a cappella choir in the United States  .

The St. For more than a century, the St. Olaf Choir has set a standard of choral excellence and remained at the forefront of choral artistry. In June of 2013 the St. Olaf Choir returned to Norway for a tour that celebrated the ensemble's first visit to the Scandinavian country in 1913. During the tour, conductor Anton Armstrong and the St. Olaf Choir once again joined forces with the Nidarosdomens Jentekor to film a new Christmas program that will be aired on public television in December 2013 to more. They recorded this program after touring 3 weeks throughout Norway in June 2013. That being said, this recording is one of the most phenomenal choral settings I have ever heard. The visual artistry is beautiful, the video production is first class, and the audio mixing is top notch.
