The "Norsemen" is a male chorus of which is a member of the Pacific Coast Singers Association ( pcnsa.org ).  The PCNSA is an organization of choruses in the lower Pacific coast states, dedicated to the preservation, encouragement and enjoyment of traditional Norwegian male chorus singing in America.  Sonja Lodge Proudly hosts the Norsemen for their rehearsals and two annual concert dinners, Lapskaus (heavy stew of beef, corned beef, pork, and potatoes) in the spring and Torsk (poached cod) in the fall.
The Norsemen sing at numerous lodge functions during the year, such as:  Syttende Mai (Norwegian Constitution Day), and the Leif Erikson dinner, community appearances at senior residence facilities during the Christmas holidays, the Scandinavian Festival in Junction City, the annual PCNSA Sangerfest Grand Concert of the combined choruses of the PCNSA in the home city of the host chorus, and following the Lapskaus (heavy stew in the spring) and Torsk (poached cod in the fall) dinners which are served by the Norsemen and the Noras (the Norsemen ladies auxilary).
The Norsemen rehearse every Monday evening but take a break from July through August.  They meet at the Sons of Norway Sonja Lodge from 7:30 until 9:00, beginning the week after Labor Day.
Our Director is Ed Amundson.  Ed makes even the rehearsals enjoyable as he projects his wonderful musical talent and command of the Norwegian language to produce performances by the chorus that are a joy to listen to.  New singers are always welcome.  There are no auditions and one does not need to speak Norwegian, they just need to have a desire to sing.  Our rehearsals are open to anyone at all times as visitors are always welcome at the lodge and with the Norsemen.
