MIC - Consert in "Gamle Logen"
MIC - The Music Information Centre in Norway invited the Congress to a concert with Norwegian Music in "Gamle
Logen" on Thursday evening.
"Gamle Logen" was originally built as a Masonic Lodge and official banquet hall for the city of
Oslo, in 1836. Edvard Grieg, Henrik Ibsen and Ole Bull are some of the famous persons who have performed
Elef Nesheim, Chairman of the Board (MIC), said in his speech that the concert wanted to present a broad perspective
on Norwegian music, and he wished all a heartly welcome.
The program stretched from Norwegian tradional music played on the Hardanger
contemporary music represented by compositions of Kåre Kolberg and
Eivind Buene, to Norwegian jazz - also called Nordic sound.
