2023-06-01 – Summer Family Book Adventure: In the Hall of the Mountain King (Online)



Begins June 1, available all summer!


Evelyn Galstad


This program has been designed for families to experience on their own schedules. There is no live Zoom event and no scheduled class time – your family can participate anytime during the month when it works for your schedule! On the first of the month, you will receive an email with the links and information about how to access.


Join us for this family-fun reading adventure! Your family can be any combination of folks as long as there’s at least one adult to help navigate the online portion. Luther College Nordic Studies instructor Evelyn Galstad will get you reading, thinking, creating, and even up and moving – indoors and out! A kit delivered right to your home contains supplies for book-reading, a fun craft, a snack, and a scavenger-hunt-type adventure.

This summer we're going to be reading The Story Orchestra: In the Hall of the Mountain King. Discover the spellbinding magic of Edvard Grieg's musical retelling of Peer Gynt, and push the button on each beautiful scene to hear the vivid sound of an orchestra playing from Grieg’s score. You'll also learn more about the composer and the instruments, rhythms, and musical techniques used.

In the spirit of the Norwegian concept of friluftsliv, the scavenger-hunt-type activity will get your family out into the great outdoors.



The $20-per-family price covers the cost of a kit including a copy of the book, materials you'll need for the fun hands-on activities, a special treat from Vesterheim, and directions for downloading and using the Goosechase app (a free app that is downloadable on any iOS or Android device). You will need to provide a tablet or mobile device to use the Goosechase app.

If you are registering for this class in a location outside the United States, you will need to provide your own supplies. Please contact folkartschool@vesterheim.org when you register for more information about what materials are required for this class.

Special Instructions:   

When registering for the class, please make sure to use the mailing and email addresses you'd like the kit and class information sent to. You will receive the login information for the Goosechase app in an email on the 1st of the month. If this class is a gift, please sign up with the recipient's addresses or be prepared to forward the kit and all communications.
