A beloved tradition in the St. Thomas community is the annual Christmas concert. Each year this concert takes place in Orchestra Hall in Minneapolis. The concert has performances by the Chamber Singers, Concert Choir, Liturgical Choir, Donne Unite, Symphonic Wind Ensemble, String Orchestra, Brass Ensemble and the Guitar Ensemble. In recent years, the event has become so popular that the concert has been expanded to two performances, though it oftentimes still sells out.
If you missed this year’s concert, you still have an opportunity to listen to wonderful holiday music by the musicians of St. Thomas! Recordings of past concerts are available at the Music & Media Collections in O’Shaughnessy-Frey Library. These recording are a great way to get in the Christmas spirit!
Below you can find selected recordings of past UST Christmas concerts. Recordings from many other years are also available in the Music & Media Collections.
