A Special Weihnachtsfest (PVF Meetings)
Lindenwood Community Center and Zoom
“Weihnachtsfest,” is the Pomeranian Christmas celebration. It is always special, but this year we have a bonus! José A. Curbelo Knutson, a doctoral student in Cultural Heritage at the Federal University of Pelotas in southern Brazil, will join us with his button box. Originally from Minnesota, the bulk of his research surrounds free-reed instruments (accordion, bandonion, etc.) and migration in Uruguay. Christmas might bring other surprises as well! Bring a dessert to share. Bring other members of your family or friends if desired.
“Minnesota-native José Curbelo Knutson is completing a doctoral degree in Social Memory and Cultural Heritage at the Universidade Federal de Pelotas in Brazil. In his international work, he has collaborated with Smithsonian Folkways Recordings of the Smithsonian Institution as well as the Ministry of Education and Culture of Uruguay, among others.”
