...in Kongsberg, Norway!Last week ended with a concert in the spirit of Purcell where I performed with the Vocal Ensemble Notus. Today we arrived in Kongsberg, Norway, to participate in the Gloger Festival! The festival of 2009 is focusing on early music and baroque, but the opening night encluded a variation of music from the 18th century until our time...from Haydn to Britten....
The opening concert was held in the Kongsberg Church and every seat was taken and the audience was enthusiastic!
My sweet colleague Elin Skorup outside the Kongsberg Church...noticing the walking sign where the figure in Norway is wearing a hat...!=)

Me and another great colleague of mine; Mia Lundell, before entering the stage!
Me and Elin Skorup dressed up for the opera entertainment during the festival pub!
And when one visits Norway one mustn't miss the typical Norweigian "brown cheese"...
