Galla concert – Kirsten Flagstad Festival


Kirsten Flagstad Festival,

Galla outdoor concert

By Henning Høholt, text and photos

The outdoor galla concert at “Domkirkeodden” was a big success, the only thing we missed was the present of the Norwegian National TV NRK. This became an extraordinary event, following in the footsteps of the former so famouse Holmenkollen concerts. Furthermor this was the debut for the new established “Innlandets Philharmonic Orchestra” conducted by Olaf Henzold with Atlle Sponberg as concert master.
