Mindekirken presents OboeBass! for the Feb. 2021 installment of their Tuesday Open House Series of cultural programs.
Norway has a living folk tradition of music and stories that permeates the culture and continues to influence new art works. We will share stories and play some traditional folk tunes and national songs, including music of Grieg, Nordråk, as well as some current composers influenced by Norwegian music and folktales. We will provide song lyrics and encourage participants to sing along exuberantly from the privacy of their own homes!
We will also share a portion of Margi Griebling-Haigh’s musical retelling of the classic Norwegian folktale of “Askelad and the Seven Silver Ducks.” (No actual ducks or trolls will be harmed in the course of this performance.) The full Askelad book/CD is available at these links: CDUniverse, AppleMusic/iTunes,
This program is free and open to the general public. Donations to Mindekirken are most appreciated in support of their Tuesday Open House series and other services to the community. Here’s the link for updates on the series:
