Welcome to a great concert in Arna church this sunday evening. Alversund kammerkor (chamber choir) will perform Gabriel Fauré’s “Requiem”, a well known, and very beautiful Requiem.
Alversund kammekor is based in Alversund, a small town 25 minutes from downtown Bergen. Alversund also happens to be my birth place and where I was raised, and from 2002 to 2008 I was employed as second organist in Alversund church, and got to work with Alversund kammerkor on several occations.
Odd Leif Mjøs is the conductor of Alversund kammerkor, and also is the musical director of Alversund church. He has made this choir to one of the best choirs in county of Hordaland, and during his time as conductor, they have performed several large pieces like St. Johns Passion (Bach), Messiah (Händel) and Requiem (by both Mozart, Duruflé and Fauré).
On this performance of Fauré’s Requiem, I will be playing the organ.
Complete program, with tickets information will be posted soon.
