Vettern College Choir from Sweden performs at Rockford's Stockholm Inn
ROCKFORD (WREX) -
A college choir from Sweden made a stop in Rockford on Sunday.
All the way from Jonkoping, Sweden, the Vettern College Choir performed at Stockholm Inn Sunday afternoon, where the Swedish Historical Society held their annual luncheon and meeting.
As they are touring the country, those 40 students will be housed throughout Rockford Sunday night by members of the society.
"We look forward to hearing stories of where my ancestors came from, but also being able to tell them a little bit about Rockford and the great city we live in," said Chad Tuneberg, the Vice President of the Swedish Historical Society.
Members said they also hope to instill in those students the great impact their country of Sweden has had on Rockford's history.
