St. Cloud State: Certain of the Dawn

Posted at 7:07 AM on March 4, 2008 by John Birge

A delegation of students and faculty from St. Cloud State, St. John's University, and the College of St. Benedict will perform a Holocaust oratorio at a Nazi concentration camp this summer. The trip comes as the campus deals with a series of incidents in which swastikas have appeared at St. Cloud State University. They’ll be performing a new oratorio "To Be Certain of the Dawn" by Stephen Paulus, which was recently performed and recorded by the MNOrch.

Here's a detailed report from the St. Cloud Times.

And here's Karl Gehrke's MPR interview and slideshow about "To Be Certain of the Dawn."
