ONLINE: OboeBass! presents “Norwegian Music and Folktales”

February 9 @ 11:00 am - 12:30 pm

Mindekirken, the Norwegian Lutheran Memorial Church in Minneapolis, welcomes you to their February Tuesday Open House! Norway has a living folk tradition of music and stories that permeates the culture and continues to influence new art works. They will share stories and play some traditional folk tunes and national songs, including music of Grieg, Nordråk, and some current composers influenced by Norwegian music and folktales. They will provide song lyrics and encourage participants to sing along exuberantly from the privacy of their own homes!

OboeBass! is Carrie Vecchione, oboe, and Rolf Erdahl, double bass. They last appeared on the Mindekirken TOH series Feb. 5, 2019 in a program about the life and music of Edvard Grieg. Rolf Erdahl was awarded Fulbright and American/Scandinavian Foundation grants for research in Bergen, Norway that culminated in his Peabody Conservatory Doctoral Dissertation on the string music of Grieg. While in Norway, Rolf also played bass with the Bergen Filharmoniske Orkester, Harmonien. Harmonien is one of the oldest orchestras in the world, and Grieg conducted it for two seasons.
