Informal concerts with a low threshold and a high standard.
The students at the Grieg Academy invite you to enjoy great musical experiences during daytime. The drop in concerts have for many years been a popular tradition on the Bergen International Festival programme, and every year the sales department is asked for the programme booklet long before it is finalised. In the Grieghallen foyer and in St John’s Church everyone has the opportunity to listen to talented young students, often performing with their teachers.
‘The Festival seeks to give young musicians who have chosen music as a profession a vital and visible platform where they can perform early in their careers. We want to inspire and nurture the foremost talent,’ says Bergen International Festival director Anders Beyer.
This year the theme of each concert will be more pronounced than in recent years. In sum the series will present works from a broad musical spectrum in the relaxed atmosphere to which audiences have become accustomed.
Programme details for all concerts will be available at fib.no/stikkinnom in May, alongside times for other concerts in Gunnar Sævigs sal.
Free admission at Johanneskirken.
Concert Friday 02 June at 12:00.
In collaboration with the Grieg Academy – Department of Music, University of Bergen.
