The President's Greeting It is my personal pleasure to welcome mem足 bers and friends of the Pacific Coast Norwegian Singers Association to this, our fifty-first Sanger足 fest in our fair city of Seattle. The rendering of Norwegian singing and folk足 lore to our American brothers and friends, is a tradition we must uphold and pass on to future generations.

May you enjoy the fellowship of

your brother Singers attending this Sangerfest and carry back to your local choruses a renewed desire to strive for better harmony in singing and in relationship with one another. To those newer Singers attending their first Sangerfest, may you grasp the harmonious spirit of your older brother Singers. JEROME SANDVIG, President
