At the concert in Knarvik we also present the trombone player Ingeborg Fonnes Flaten, a student at Bergen Private Gymnas and member of Eikanger Bjørsvik Musikklag Youth. 

New singers

‘Virgencita’ was astonishing; it had exactly the sense of calm, stillness, intense moments of silence & the bell-like quality that is the essence of Arvo Pärt’s later works.
‘Leonardo’ was exciting & uplifting; ‘Peccavi super numerum’ full of variety of interpretation & good ensemble. Your Grieg was exquisite.
