 Nineteen Big Lake High School choir students participated in the 111th Annual St. Olaf Choral Festival earlier this month. The students performed among 1,300 voices as part of the main festival choir. The event also included performances by specifically selected southern Minnesota high school choirs, and four choral ensembles from St. Olaf College.
Big Lake participants included members of the treble and concert choirs and chamber singers. The students performed under the direction of Dr. Anton Armstrong, the conductor of the world renowned St. Olaf Choir. Students participated in two intense rehearsal sessions during the day, then performed a public concert in the evening.
