Voksenåsen goes North

Two selected quartets from the chamber music course are travelling on tour to the north and will be playing at the Arctic Chamber Music Festival 2021 at Svalbard.

NOVO Quartet and Abeo Quartet are travelling together with two of the talents from the Voksenåsen Composer Academy, Anna Berg and Ylva Fred, and they will be playing at the Festival Thursday February 18.

We are also lucky to have our artistic leader Peter Herresthal, professor, chamber music and composer mentor Tim Frederiksen – and composer star – Missy Mazzoli, joining us up to the north.

The tour is a part of the 25th anniversary of the Voksenåsen Summer Academy. During the anniversary two new academies at Voksenåsen will be developed; composer and a chamber music academy. This would not be possible without the support from Dextra and Furestiftelsen.
