The renowned St. Olaf Choir, under the direction of Conductor Anton Armstrong, will be appearing in Philadelphia at the Kimmel Center's Verizon Hall on Monday, February 8, 2010, at 7:30 pm. This is the first time in eight years that the choir will be performing in Philadelphia, and The Lutheran Theological Seminary at Philadelphia is partnering with St. Olaf to make this concert a success. The choir's last appearance, in 2001, quickly sold out, so be sure to reserve your seats now.
The St. Olaf Choir, with 75 mixed voices, is considered one of the finest college a cappella choirs in the United States. For more than three-quarters of a century, the St. Olaf Choir has maintained its original purpose - study and preparation of a wide range of representative sacred choral literature for public performance. The annual tour advances the artistic standards of church music and provides means of spiritual inspiration for its many listeners.
