Welcome Mats Zuccarello!

IMG_0454.jpg

The Norwegian-American Chamber of Commerce - North Chapter and Norway House - the National Norwegian Center in America are holding a meet-and-greet event with our members and the greater Norwegian community to meet the new face of the Minnesota Wild, Oslo native Mats Zuccarello! 

After recording 40 points including 15 power-play points across his 48 games with the New York Rangers and Dallas Stars last season, Mats Zuccarello signed a $30M five-year contract with the Wild this summer, making him one of the most talked-about acquisitions to the team.

In addition, the ambitious athlete has historically been very active in the Norwegian-American communities and enjoys connecting with fellow countrymen in the US. He established the Zuccarello Foundation in 2016 to assist and help grow Norwegian grassroots sports throughout the country and is an ambassador for Right To Play, an organization that helps educate and empower children living in disadvantaged communities. Through his own charity events, Zuccarello has helped raise more than $1,000,000 for Right To Play.

---

Come meet Mats Zuccarello at Norway House on Monday, October 21st, enjoy light hors d'oeuvres and a cash bar at Norway House's Kaffebar, and check out Nordic Ware: the Art & Science of the Bundt in the Gallery.

Ásgeir at The Cedar

How do you follow up the fastest selling debut album in Icelandic history, a record that out-performed even national treasures Björk and Sigur Rós’ first releases? At first 24-year-old sensation Ásgeir, returning at last in 2017 with daringly electronic new album Afterglow, pretended to those around him that the heat wasn’t on, that the stakes weren’t high. “I used to tell most people that I didn’t feel any pressure,” he laughs now. “But I was lying. I didn’t want to go into that discussion.”

In this performance visiting performing artist, Ragnhild A. Mørch mixes childhood memories with her family’s stories – a jigsaw which stretches across three generations. A performance that shows how Norwegian-German history not only consists of broad political lines but of individual fate. And that it is the personal decision-making that decides which turns the road takes.

HORIZON is one element of Ragnhild’s two week visit to the University of Minnesota where she will work directly with students, educators, and community members.

Aurora at First Ave

It is as if pure magic runs through AURORA’s veins. Enchanting by name and by nature, there’s something decidedly singular and strange about this tiny Nordic musician with the massive talent. With an eye-watering 200 million+ streams and 500,000+ sales for her stunning 2016 debut album, All My Demons Greeting Me As A Friend, it’s hard to believe that the dynamic Norwegian singer/songwriter is still only 21, and AURORA is now pushing things forward like never before.
