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 here.
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 fiddle, via contemporary music represented by compositions of Kåre Kolberg and Eivind Buene, to Norwegian jazz - also called Nordic sound.
