For many people, over several generations, the celebration of the Advent – Christmas – Epiphany season begins with the annual St. Olaf Christmas Festival, a century-old tradition of the college.

This year’s Christmas Festival begins with the St. Olaf Orchestra and maestro Steven Amundson performing Matthew Peterson’s lush and lyrical Dawn: Redeeming, Radiant, originally commissioned for the festival in 2012.
