Daniel and Eija Aalto will lead the "Kauneimmat Joululaulut (The Most Beautiful Christmas Carols)" sing-along event at the Ansgar Danish Lutheran Church (9554, 108a Ave.) on Saturday, December 22 at 3:00 PM.
We will be singing half of the songs in English and half in Finnish to serve as many Christmas Carol lovers as possible. Afterwards, we'll enjoy glögi and pipari at the basement. Please bring your singing voice, family, and friends to the happy Christmas event and take the beautiful Christmas spirit home with you!
In February 2019 we will celebrate the traditional mid-winter outdoor event with pea soup and pancakes.
More details to follow.
The Edmonton Symphony Orchestra will return with a series of Sibelius concerts between February 22 and March 9, 2019. The selection of music includes some of the composer's most famous pieces such as Finlandia and Valse Triste. The Finnish Society will be a sponsor during this event.
