Lunch with Anders Fogh Rasmussen 

Arranged on corporation with our Honorary Consul Anna Thomsen Holliday, DACCSW’s members spend an exciting lunch with Anders Fogh Rasmussen, Former Prime Minister of Denmark and Immediate past Secretary General of NATO on April 4th 2017

Mr. Fogh Rasmussen, a veteran in Politics and Foreign affairs, was in Houston to promote his new book “The Will To Lead” America’s Indispensable Role in The Global Fight for Freedom.

The repeated mantra in his book is that the World needs a strong and decisive American Leadership that plays an active role in global affairs. As Mr. Fogh Rasmussen cited:

 

                “The only thing necessary for the triumph of evil is for good men to do nothing” by Edmund Burke

 

The audience enjoyed insight in Mr. Fogh Rasmussen’s long career as top politician as well as his 5 years as Secretary General of NATO. An insight that “normal mortal” people not gets

to see very often, which also was demonstrated in the huge willingness from the audience to ask questions.

The Nordic Singers from The Royal Danish Opera in Copenhagen 

Sunday June 15. the Nordic singers from The Royal Danish Opera in Copenhagen visited Houston and gave a great concert. Approximately 100 people enjoyed the 4 singers and the pianist performing for 2 hours at the Christ the King Lutheran Church in Rice Village. They both covered the classic repertoire and a lot of well known Danish songs – Finishing up with Queen “Bohemian Rhapsody” (and yes they were head banging!) and ABBA “Thank you for the music”. What a great experience that was!!
