Professional choir Tabula Rasa will perform a series of concerts at three locations in western Norway in mid-October, 2019. The program is entitled Peace (“Fred” in Norwegian), and features the theme of sacred music facing war memorials. The program is designed to stimulate reflection on the consequences of war and whether it is enough to dream of peace.
The program features music by Orlando de Lassus, Arnold Schönberg, Arvo Pärt, Frank Havrøy, Jake Runestad, and the premiere performance of a new piece by Tord Kalvenes.
This project is supported by the Norwegian Arts Council, the Norwegian Composers Association, and the Norwegian Composers Fund.
