Scandinavian Midsummer, June 22-23rd - This weekend!
We're in the Icelandic Room both days in the Scandinavian Centre, Burnaby.
To celebrate MIdsummer, I'm offering this from my Vancouver BC ephemera files.
The Norwegian Choral Society, Vancouver, 1935
The programme for The Norwegian Choral Society’s April 25th, 1935 Concert at the Victory Auditorium in Vancouver lists the names of those who sang or played. Some names do look familiar, but I have not researched them all yet. The advertisers mostly have Norwegian connections too, so I've added them to my index.
Hercules Worsoe, the Choir’s Conductor, was at this time an insurance agent for C Gardner Johnson, one of the Choir's advertisers.
