USA TOUR 1-12 May 1997

Cappella Catharinae visited the USA between 1-12 May 1997 with its conductor Lars-Ewe Nilsson and the accompanist Erik Wadman. We went to Chicago, Rock Island, Moline, Andover, and Bishop Hill, Illinoi, and Decorah, Iowa, and the Twin Cities area of Minnesota.

We was looking forward to coming to Swedish Immigrant areas as a final event in the Swedish Immigration Sesquintennial Jubilee. Our choir, the CAPPELLA CATHARINAE, is one of several choirs in the Lutheran Katarina Church in Stockholm. We were 36 persons on the tour, our conductor and a pianist/organist included. We sang both sacred and secular ( Scandinavian ) songs.

Our performances was being arranged in cooperation with the Ecumenical Office of The Evangelical Lutheran Church in America and Lutheran Brotherhood.
