Skol! A Scandinavian Celebration

October 23 @ 3:00 pm - 4:15 pm

In the Leslie Phillips Theater in the Fine and Performing Art building of Holyoke Community College, doors open at 2:30 for the performance which begins at 3 pm. There is no admission charge. Donations (cash and checks )are greatly appreciated.

Composers born in the Scandinavian nations of Norway, Sweden, Denmark, Finland, and Iceland were relative newcomers to the Classical European art scene, but since World War II their works have become increasingly prominent in orchestra programs as well as in popular music. In Skol! A Scandinavian Celebration four of the best-known musicians whose compositions have become familiar to audiences around the world will be performed, including: Cark Nielsen’s Maskarade Overture, FS-39; two selections from works of Jean Sibelius – Karelia Suite, Op. 11 and Finlandia, Op. 26; Franz Berwald’s Estrella de Soria Overture, and Edvard Grieg’s Peer Gynt Suite No. 1, Op- 46.

Concertgoers are required to wear masks in building and theater.
