Ballard First Lutheran Church (2006 NW 65th St) will play host to one of three Puget Sound area concerts featuring one of the most outstanding men’s chorus from North Norway.

Hålogaland Mandssangforening, a chorus of 39 singers from eight different municipalities north of the Lofoten Islands in North Norway (Kvæfjord, Harstad, Målselv, Narvik, Andøy, Tjeldsund, Evenes, and Balsfjord), will perform at the church at 7 p.m. on Sept. 10, and will be sponsored and joined by the Norwegian Male Chorus of Seattle.

The chorus is directed by Dag Erik Enoksen, who has been an artistic leader and esteemed soloist in the region, and has been honored with The Culture Award for excellence. The leader and chorus organizer, Jan Meyer, is a retired teacher at Harstad University College, has been a guest professor at University of Minnesota and Minot State University, and has also been involved in the Kvæfjord Male Chorus as a leader and singer.

After its Seattle performances — which will also include performances in Bellingham at the Central Lutheran Church at 3 p.m. on Sept. 6 and in Poulsbo at the First Lutheran Church at 5 p.m. on Sept. 7 — the chorus will make stops in Eugene, Ore., and San Francisco.
