Damekor means "Ladies Chorus" in Norwegian.
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 many 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.
Coming up we have the mens' chorus Torsk dinner, a Scandinavian choral festival in Seattle in May, 2014 and one other local performance. In September, 2014 there is a group of choruses from Northern Norway coming and we will be involved with that event.

The Bellingham Damekor has performed throughout the Pacific Northwest singing at churches, meetings, celebrations, parades and concerts. They returned from a tour Norway in May, 2007.
