Classical Saturdays

Under the artistic direction of renowned Peter and Christina Herresthal, we are proud to present a concert series that brings together traditional art and music with the innovative thoughts and musical influences of the present day.

The concert series takes place within the exhibition 'Norwegian Church Art.' The space is designed like a church ship, featuring whitewashed walls, high ceilings, and excellent acoustics, making it an ideal setting for musical experiences.

After the concerts, there will be an afterparty for the audience and musicians, featuring light refreshments.

Hehku Trio

In a program that spans from early Baroque to entirely newly written works, Hehku Trio invites the audience on a journey of contemplation.

Poems by authors such as Edith Södergran and Eino Leino create a space to reflect on life's big questions, as well as on the impact of nature and the seasons on our lives. This is set to the music of composers like Antonio Vivaldi, Honoré d’Ambruis, Barbara Strozzi, Anna Thorvaldsdottir, Frederik Zeuthen, and resident composer Anna Berg.
