Trumpeter Kai Robert Johansen is from Østfold County in southeastern Norway; he has been performing for 53 years and has been a composer, trumpeter, singer, and radio and TV personality. Johansen has toured the world with his music, including 20 visits to the United States. His album sales exceed one million; several have become gold and platinum-certified. His latest CD, recorded in Nashville, is “Elvis-Trumpet, Kai Robert with James Burton and Musicians,” with strings and vocals by the Imperials.
Tuesday Open House is a program of Mindekirken dedicated to expanding knowledge for persons interested in Mindekirken and Norwegian literature, culture, history, music, theology, and art. As the United State's last remaining Norwegian-speaking church, Mindkeirken is devoted to its roots and connection to the vibrant Norwegian-American population in Minneapolis and its evergrowing immigrant and American Indian neighbors who call Ventura Village home.
The program provides a weekly opportunity for fellowship, devotions, and a delicious luncheon. $10 cash/check is requested at the door.
With greetings from the consul of Iceland, Jeannie Fox Entenza, Honorary Consul of Iceland for Minnesota and North Dakota.
(Kai Robert Johansen will also play at the Mindekirken church service on Sunday, October 8).
