Nordic Voices, a six-voice a cappella group that has been making waves not only in Norway, but in places as far afield as South Africa, Taiwan, Bolivia and the United States, will perform at 3 p.m. Sunday, Feb. 11.
Formed in 1996, Nordic Voices consists of sopranos Tone Elisabeth Braaten and Ingrid Hanken, mezzo soprano Ebba Rydh, tenor Per Kristian Amundrød, baritone Frank Havrøy and bass Rolf Magne Asser.
All are graduates of the Norwegian Academy of Music and the Norwegian Academy of Opera. In addition to their singing backgrounds, their experience ranges from choral conducting to teacher training and composition.
The Brookings concert is titled “Nordic Voices — An evening of Commissions.” It features music written for Nordic Voices over the years. The pieces are all by Norwegian composers. In addition to the commissioned pieces, there are two Norwegian lullabies arranged by Havrøy.
The concert is at the Brookings Seventh-day Adventist Church at 102 Park Ave.
Adult tickets are $20. Season tickets are also available. Students younger than 18 are admitted free. Tickets may be purchased at the door or at Wright’s Custom Framing and Art Supplies.
