When we started out, I felt like this project was mine, but it isn't anymore. It is definitely our project. This is St. Olaf's project, Matt Johnson 05 said, referring to his upcoming album, Horizon Line.
In its penultimate campus performance before an upcoming trip to Norway, the St. Olaf Band performed a colorful Spring Concert in Skoglund Auditorium on Sunday afternoon. The 90-minute program, conducted by Professor of Music Timothy Mahr, featured solo performances by a pair of seniors and the premiere of a new work by Michael Sweeney 05.
Upon arriving at the Pause for the Joey Kantor Trio/Kubla Khan concert Friday night, I was quite surprised not by the fact that the show started half an hour late, but by the impressive crowd waiting for the doors to open. With a line that went from the Pause stage to the top of the Buntrock staircase, I figured the show ought to be quite good.
As spring rolls around, seniors begin to emerge from dating hibernation and frolic like squirrels out on Mellby lawn. If two Oles eventually decide to frolic together for the rest of their lives, they can now turn to Instructor of Music Karen Solgård for Norwegian wedding music to help bring out the little bit of Scandinavian in them.
