Kauneimmat Joululaulut Singalong (Part 1 of 7)

The Twin Cities Finnish community celebrated Kauneimmat Joululaulut on Sat. Dec. 10, 2022, at St. Michael’s Lutheran Church in Roseville, MN. We were joined by the Finn Hall Band, the Suomi Finland 100 Chorus, and emcee Milla Mykrä, a Fullbright Foreign Language Teaching Assistant at the University of Minnesota. It was a joyous time!! Hyvää Joulua!
