Every Christmas for the past few years, Minnesota Icelanders have celebrated Christmas in a special, peaceful, quiet manner in the same way it is celebrated in Iceland and the tradition brought by the Icelandic Immigrants to Minnesota.  An Icelandic Christmas Service!  This year the service will be held at Grace University Lutheran Church, a church, 324 Harvard Street SE, Minneapolis. Grace Church, over the years, has been attended by many of the Minnesota Immigrant families when they moved to the Twin Cities. Rev. Eyglo Bjarnadottir will lead the service and will be assisted by Jon Omar Gunnarsson,an Icelandic student at Luther Seminary.  Steven Self, the Music Director at Grace University Lutheran Church has graciously offered to assist, and provide music this year. Steve is a great friend of Iceland, a friend of Pall Skaftason who taught him Icelandic followed by Bjorgvin, and studies Icelandic music and its composers.  His generosity is appreciated.       
Please join the choir for its first practice on December 14th at 12:00 noon, at Grace University Lutheran Church.  Choir participants may park in Lot AA, diagonally across Harvard Street from the church. It is a monitored lot M-F, but not on the weekends. Hope you will come and join the Icelandic Christmas choir. Everyone is welcome!  For more information, please contact Eyglo Bjarnadottir at ebjarnadottir@gmail.com
