The Croixaliers traveling honors choir is made up of 24 auditioned Christian singing ambassadors and is directed by Mr. Casey Pufahl, a 14-year veteran of St. Croix Lutheran Grades 6-12, West St. Paul. The choir consistently earns a superior rating at MSHSL Solo and Ensemble State competitions and travels throughout the school year to area Lutheran churches as a part of Christian singing ministry, as well as taking part in numerous concerts and special events at the school and in the community.
