Ultima Extra: Sanger til havet

On Sunday 16 June, Det Norske Solistkor takes over Henie Onstad Kunstsenter with music and lyrics about the wild, beautiful sea.

Life in the sea and man's relationship to it has been a theme in Det Norske Solistkor's concert programs over the past year through the choir's priority project, Et hav av stemmer/A Sea of Voices.

But life in the sea, and with it ourselves, is threatened by climate change and pollution. How do we behave in the encounter with the largest part of our globe? With the project A Sea of Voices, the Det Norske Solistkor wishes to shed light on this important theme with concerts, recordings and musical meeting places with the sea as the thematic focal point.

Repertoire:

Lars Johan Werle: Nautical preludes

Bente L. Thorsen: Laughing my head off singing your heart in

Evert Taube: Inbjudan til Bohuslän

The concert starts in the foyer and wanders out into the sculpture park, weather permitting.

The project is a collaboration with Ultima Oslo Contemporary Music Festival and is made possible with support from Sparebankstiftelsen DNB as part of Ultima + HOK: Listening to the Legacy.

About the choir:

Det Norske Solistkor consists of 26 hand-picked, professional singers with great expressive power. Together with its renowned artistic director Grete Pedersen, the choir is constantly developing towards realizing ambitious artistic goals.

Free with entrance ticket to the museum.
