The St. Olaf Band is excited and honored to be premiering three works on its upcoming recorded performance – which will be streamed on May 31, Memorial Day, at 7 pm CT: stolaf.edu/
- Leanna Primiani is an active composer working primarily in the TV and movie industry. She was identified by the CBDNA as a young composer exhibiting great accomplishment about a dozen years ago. Her work GLASS CEILING will be premiered by the St. Olaf Band, and is timely and profoundly effective.
- Nova Pon is creating wonderfully inventive music and has been quite successful across Western Canada. TILTING SUNWARD is an evocative depiction of the coming dawn at a pond near where she lived.
- Ella Harpstead, a St. Olaf College alumna, created DARKROOM for the St. Olaf Band, a serious work about struggles with mental health. The band was rehearsing it when the pandemic arose last spring, and its premiere was thwarted.
