Jazz in Bergen, April 2012

I have a few gigs as a vocalist and trumpeter in Bergen, Norway at the end of April, and will plan to post more details here soon, including precise times, directions, links, and posters.

-On Sunday, April 22 (starting at 2pm) I sing a vocal solo part for the Duke Ellington Sacred Concert, which will be performed with a full jazz band and choir at Korskirken, a medieval cathedral in the city center. Click HERE for a poster.

Here are links to two pages from the Ellington concert program:

-On Thursday evening, April 26 (9pm to midnight) I have a gig as a bandleader for which I will perform original songs and jazz standards on trumpet and voice. It will be at The Lounge, in the city center, on Kaigaten just across the pond from Grieg Hall. The evening will open with an a cappella vocal quartet [Silje Valde Onsrud (soprano), Anne Kristine Wallace Turøy (alto), Tine Grieg Viig (contralto), Egil Haugland (tenor), and David Hebert (bass)]. This will be followed by two sets of solo trumpet and voice with keyboard (Øystein Kvinge), bass (Sigurd Ulveseth), and drums (Jan Tore Ness). We will also be joined by other special guest instrumentalists. Click HERE for a poster.

-Additionally, nine of my trumpet students are giving a recital on that same week at the Grieg Academy, Bergen University College (Landås). It is on Tuesday evening, April 24th. Click
