Minneapolis Museum in the Streets - A Walking Tour
Museum in the Streets is a free walking tour of Lake Street, showing the area's history through stories and photos on plaques. We're pleased that Ingebretsen's was chosen to be part of the project. We were included because of our history of serving an immigrant community, a tradition that continues on East Lake Street.

The Svenskarnas Dag Girls Choir

Do you have a daughter, granddaughter, niece, etc…who loves to sing…wants to learn more about her Scandinavian heritage…and is 8-16 years old? The Svenskarnas Dag Girls Choir is dedicated to the preservation of Swedish heritage through the performance of traditional Swedish music. The Choir performs traditional Swedish folk tunes and hymns in both Swedish and English. The Choir also performs a Christmas concert, which includes a St. Lucia pageant. This beautiful presentation of St. Lucia by candlelight is a highlight of the season.

The Svenskarnas Dag Girls Choir helps girls learn about their Swedish heritage, develop choral skills, gain self-confidence and create lasting friendships. Wearing their colorful Swedish costumes... Lucia gowns at Christmas...and performing traditional Swedish music, their concerts are not only "music to the ear", but also visually beautiful.
