The Norwegian Male Chorus of Seattle was founded in 1889 — the year of Washington’s statehood — and is the oldest continuously operating choral organization in Seattle.

In addition to the annual Sangerfest, our performance schedule includes Sons of Norway Leif Erikson Lodge functions, Julefest and Tivoli Viking Days events at the Nordic Heritage Museum and the Syttende Mai Parade. The chorus combines with other area heritage choirs including the Norwegian Ladies’ Chorus and the Finnish and Swedish choruses in Seattle for concerts, as well as hosting their own concerts through the year.

Rehearsals take place in Ballard every Monday evening at 7:30 at the Leif Erikson Lodge (Norna Room, 3rd floor), at 2245 NW 57th St, except for the last Monday of the month. That rehearsal is located at the Norse Home, 5311 Phinney Ave N.
