One Medford local and choir member, Garrett Bond, suggested that it make a stop in his hometown.

Bond graduated from North Medford High School in 2015, and is now a junior at St. Olaf. He's a music theory and composition major.

He's written more than 20 compositions for various ensembles, one of which was commissioned work by Dr. Anton Armstrong, the conductor for the St. Olaf Choir.

Bond says he started writing songs in high school. He now also acts as an associate director, music director, manager, member, and pianist for multiple organizations.

He's even been commissioned to write a song for a choir in Norway.

The St. Olaf Choir will perform at North Medford High School on February 3 at 3 p.m. Tickets are $20, and $5 for students.
