At the 100 year mark of a Lutheran Church in West Barnstable, praises of a heritage that began with Finnish Pastor Alpo Setala will be sung this year - including a Stämbandet offering March 28, 3 and 7pm. The repertoire will no doubt be Finnish heavy, honoring the origins and heritage of this West Barnstable church that following Setala was led by Brunos Wuornos, 1916-1930; Viljo Heiman, 1930-1933; Armas Holmio, 1933-1943, Martin Halinen, 1943-1948; Edwin Kyllonen, 1949-1951; Toivo Harjunpaa, 1951-1956; Douglas Ollila, 1956-62....
Stämbandet will compete in Sing That Thing! It is an initiative that highlights the Greater Boston singing that goes on in small and large groups of all ages. One group in each category will win. Categories include high school, college, small adult, and large adult group. We will keep you "tuned in" as to our progress, airing on television, and of course.....the results.
