2017 St. Olaf College Christmas Festival

"On Christmas Day" by Steven Amundson (2017)

Composed in 2017 for the St. Olaf Christmas Festival, On Christmas Day was  subsequently broadcast on National Public Radio.  The title comes from  the familiar Christmas Carol, “I Saw Three Ships Come Sailing In On  Christmas Day,” which is hinted at and finally quoted in solo woodwinds  and later in the full orchestra.  Filled with memorable tunes , vivid  colors and remarkable energy, the composer thinks On Christmas Day is his best yet!
