Damekor means "Ladies Chorus" in Norwegian.
You don't have to speak Norwegian to sing in the chorus. It is fun to learn and we sing at concerts everywhere - churches, meetings, celebrations, concerts and even parades.

A distinctive group, it is one of a growing number of West Coast Scandinavian Ladies choruses. Whether you know Norwegian or not, are of Scandinavian descent or not, you will want to experience an extraordinary Damekor performance.

Organized in September 1999, Damekor grew out of a new chapter of Daughters of Norway, Nellie Gerdrum Lodge #41. Currently the Damekor has membership of all ages and from several communities.

"It's interesting to hear this fresh Scandinavian outlook in singing the different styles of music expressed from the background of the Scandinavian culture," remarked Steve Jensen, director.

We recently performed for the Bellingham Sons of Norway Anniversary Celebration.

Several Damekor members attended the 2014 Daughters of Norway Convention in Minneapolis, MN where we joined with the combined Damekor Convention chorus for a special performance at the Mall of America. 


Coming up:  Our 2014 Christmas holiday season will be busy with lots of new music and several performances scheduled including the Daughters of Norway Scandinavian Fair, the traditional  Annual Christmas Concert with the Bellingham Norwegian Male Chorus,  a special "Holiday Show" at the Bellewood Acres Farm, and holiday programs for various local organizations. 

In January we invite new members to join our group with plans ahead for spring activities.
