  • Skandinaven -- March 29, 1908
    Concert for Norwegian Orphanage

    The new Norwegian Orphanage will become a worthy national memorial to Norway's sons and daughters. The plans are now completed for the building in Edison Park--a building that will have no equal in America. The entire Norwegian colony in Chicago is displaying a lot of enthusiasm for the rebuilding of the old Orphanage, which was destroyed by fire a short time ago.

    The first method of raising money will be a gigantic concert in Orchestra Hall, on April 8. All tickets for this concert have been sold, and the proceeds can be determined now. The concert has been arranged under the leadership of the Norwegian National Committee, and the following musical program has been provided:
