New York Scandia Symphony endures

Best to follow the beat of your own (Scandinavian) drum Victoria Hofmo Brooklyn, N.Y. Although I’ve lived in New York City my entire life and am a proud descendent of Scandinavians, it wasn’t until a few months ago that I learned about the existence of the New York Scandia Symphony. It wasn’t because they are a new organization that slid under my radar. They have been performing here for over 30 years. I was a little ashamed, and this article is to atone for my ignorance. Perhaps you, like me, haven’t been privy to this New York gem either. I first noticed the Scandia Symphony through an ad for their performance at Fort Tyron Park in Inwood.
