A Fundraiser for
THE EDVARD GRIEG SOCIETY OF MN YOUTH STRINGS COMPETITION
Norway House’s Edvard Grieg Society of Minnesota is proud to present a family of musicians from Oslo, representing three generations of talent. The Habbestad Ensemble has been making music together since 1996. In 1997, they toured the United States for the first time, and they have performed extensively through Scandinavia and Europe.
THE HABBESTAD ENSEMBLE | ECHOES OF NORWAY
The ensemble consists of Kjell, Inger Elisabeth, and their children Ida, Ingvild, and Erlend. Their grandchildren are slowly being integrated into the ensemble as they continue to excel on their respective instruments.
This online event will feature a 45-minute streamed concert by the Habbestad family from their home in Norway, and a happy hour post-concert talkback, in which guests will be able to chat and ask questions of the ensemble.
Tickets for this online event will become available in December 2020.
Please save the date, and consider a donation to the Edvard Grieg Society of Minnesota.
