The Concerto Grosso spectacle, with hundreds of musicians of different ages from four Nordic countries, which was organised in Norway and Finland in November 2018, travels on to Sweden and Iceland and takes the audience to the Vikings' home countries and to the destinations of their journeys.
Initiated in 2012, the grand Concerto Grosso events have gathered thousands of participants to experience the joy of making music together. This time, the project is especially exceptional due to its geographical scope.
Duration: 1 h 45 min (incl. intermission)
