June is Edvard Grieg month! 🇳🇴 I’m a kid in a candy shop this month….. From getting my feet wet with Edvard Grieg Society of Minneapolis, acting as a new board member, advocating in as many ways as possible, adjudicating the first ever EGS Voice Competition this past Saturday, performing for the big 175th celebration….to preparing my students for a Scandinavian Voice recital June 27 at the American Danish Center! (More info to come!) I’m loving it so much. Of course I’m biased with EG’s music.
We are celebrating Edvard Grieg’s 175th Birthday on June 15… there will be a wonderful event held at Mindekirken – the Norwegian Memorial Church in Minneapolis starting 7:30 p.m. The event will feature songs, instrumental music, piano music, speeches, and even “all sang”. Come help celebrate the music of this fantastic, prolific and beloved Norwegian composer!
Hope to see you for some events. There’s still a lot of June left!
