100th Sangerfest of the Pacific Coast Norwegian Singer's Association
- The tradition of Norwegian male choral singing continues this summer with the 100th Sangerfest of the PCNSA. The first Sangerfest was held in Everett, WA in 1903 and celebrated the musical heritage of Norwegian, Scandinavian, and American male chorus singing which was at it's height in the early 1900's.
The Norsemen mens' chorus of Sonja Lodge will host this year's Sangerfest which will be highlighted by a Grand Concert which is open to the public.
The twelve member choruses of the PCNSA will be in attendance as well as a guest chorus: The Hauka Mannskor from Soknedal, Norway. 130 or so singers are expected.
Tickets for the Grand Concert are $20/each. The Grand Concert will be held June 26th, 2009 at 7:30 in the Hilton Convention Center in Eugene, OR. For ticket information contact centennialsangefest@... or (541)510-8393.
