Festival Chorus

Making spirits bright. Celebrate the holiday season with the best gift of music. Listen to Christmas and holiday classics, from traditional to modern. The Festival Chorus, comprised of 40 to 50 singers from the St. Croix River Valley, focuses on a cappella music that truly rings in the holiday spirit. This renowned group has been invited twice to the Wisconsin Choral Directors Association’s state convention.

Thomas Dahle, Music Director since 1993, received his degree in instrumental and vocal music from Luther College, Decorah, Iowa. He has been a member of The Minnesota Chorale and The Saint Paul Chamber Orchestra Chorale. Performances with these groups, in concert with The Saint Paul Chamber Orchestra and The Minnesota Orchestra, have given him rehearsal and performance experience with world-renowned conductors Robert Shaw, Helmuth Rilling, Jeffrey Tate, Eiji Oue, Hugh Wolff, Andrew Litton, Harry Bicket, Nicholas McGegan, Douglas Boyd, Kathy Romey, and Dale Warland.
