Linda Priebe’s Norwegian Christmas: World-famous star brings a touch of Norway to America

Special Release

Linda Priebe, Mezzo-Soprano, transports her listeners with her gleaming copper voice. Her soaring sound, from its rich depths to its brilliant heights, is matched by her gifts as a passionate and moving performer.

Linda captivated listeners at Carnegie Hall when she sang Bach’s beloved “Jesu,” Joy of Man’s Desiring” with world-renowned Soprano, Veronica Tyler. She brought the American Civil War era vividly to life as the chilling, scheming looter, Eltha, in the premiere of “The People’s Voice.” Linda caused howls of laughter as Cecily, the doddering maid to an aging soprano in “La Divina.” And audiences erupted in applause for her as the spinster Princess, Katisha, in Gilbert & Sullivan’s “The Mikado.”

Linda’s thrilling voice is also a favorite for international events. She entertained an audience of a thousand eagerly awaiting Norway’s King and Queen with an eclectic concert of Norway’s and America’s best folk, classical, spirituals, and jazz. Linda made her Lincoln Center debut in August of 2007 as Cherubino and Marcellina in excerpts from Mozart’s poignant opera “The Marriage of Figaro” with Veronica Tyler in Concert.

Linda Priebe has a rare gift for touching and moving hearts. Her rich and brilliant voice brings joy to listeners throughout the United States and in Europe.

This fall, Linda has released her new CD title “Land of the Midnight Son: Norwegian Christmas in America” Linda Priebe, Mezzo-Soprano and Norwegian Pianist Ola Gjeilo with Brian Priebe, Trombone and Alphorn. The album is $15 plus $3 for shipping and handling. To order your copy go to or email
