Video: Stillwater Bids Farewell to Longtime Choir Director Dr. Erik Christiansen

Dr. Erik Christiansen is retiring after 28 years as director of Stillwater’s Concert Choir.

On April 26, more than 200 of his former choir members attended his farewell concert at St. Andrew’s Lutheran Church in Mahtomedi.

During the farewell concert, Stillwater Area High School choir alumni sang a song commissioned by Rene Clausen, and joined the current choir for a grand finale to sing the choir’s signature song, “O Day Full of Grace,” which was written by Doc’s grandfather, F. Melius Christiansen.
