Wow, this has been a crazy busy month and it’s been primarily consisting of Nordic Song! Well, more specific, Norwegian Song. Which of course is wonderful in every possible way! If you’ve always been curious about Nordic Song (Norwegian, Swedish, Finnish, Danish) – and want to check it out – please join us next Wednesday evening June 27 at 7:30 P.M. Six of my current students and I have put together a Nordic Voice Recital of Norwegian, Swedish, Finnish and Danish Songs. This idea came out of wanting to celebrate a rather big event….THE 175th birthday of Edvard Grieg, June 15, 1843. So there’s lots of Grieg on the program, but also music by Sibelius, Heise, Dørumsgaard, Lekberg, Kilpinen & more! We are joined by the lovely and talented Krista Costin, (renowned twin cities Mezzo Soprano) who will share some Danish songs with us and will also sing some selections from Grieg’s Haugtussa, opus 67.
Hope to see you there!
