ST. PAUL, Minn. — I've come to expect a new piece every time I go to hear the St. Olaf Choir. In a February concert this year the ensemble performed what could become a choral classic: a new work by Minnesota composer (and St. Olaf alum) Abbie Betinis called "The World made New: Eleanor Roosevelt's Evening Prayer."

The St. Olaf Choir led by Anton Armstrong presents the world premiere performance in this week's Regional Spotlight.
