Release concert celebrating young composition students
The February 6 concert will also conclude a cooperation between NV and the Norwegian Academy of Music (NMH) Students from the Academy have submitted works written for a master class with Nordic Voices. The purpose of this project is to encourage a younger generation of composers to see the unique possibilities in writing for vocal ensembles. Nordic Voices and NMH will pick out one of the contributions and reward the composer with a scholarship, and the winner will be announced at the concert.
