This service in song and word has become one of the nation's most cherished holiday celebrations. The festival includes hymns, carols, choral works, as well as orchestral selections celebrating the Nativity and featuring more than 500 student musicians in five choirs, and the St. Olaf Orchestra. SymphonyCast host Alison Young shares the sights and sounds of this choral favorite.
In addition to serving as host of SymphonyCast, Alison Young hosts weekday mornings on Classical Minnesota Public Radio, the Saint Paul Chamber Orchestra broadcasts and American Public Media's annual St. Olaf Christmas Festival. Before her career in radio, she enjoyed a successful career as a concert flutist performing with the Atlanta and Boston Symphonies and in recitals throughout Europe, South America, Asia and the United States. Ms. Young is an avid kayaker, rock climber, backpacker, biker and competitive skier. She and her husband, Richard Rasch, live across the street from F. Scott Fitzgerald's birthplace in Saint Paul, MN.
