This unique musical offering features beloved Norwegian guest artists soprano Reidun Horvei and pianist Inger-Kristine Riber. They will be joined by the Seattle-Bergen String Quartet with Allion Salvador, Rachel Nesvig, Aleida Gehrels, and Zoë Kohen Ley in their original arrangements of traditional yuletide favorites. Joining in on the fun is the Seattle Lilla Spelmanslag under the direction of Martha Levenson.

This extraordinary concert is a free community event, and everyone is welcome to come and celebrate. Bring your friends and family, and help spread the word about this special day of musical joy and peace.


All donations will benefit the Seattle-Bergen String Quartet’s 2018 Norway tour with Reidun Horvei and Inger-Kristine Riber.
