Mostly Nordic Music Series kicks off this Sunday

Posted by Danielle Anthony-Goodwin on February 21st, 2014

MostlyNordicLogov3The Mostly Nordic Chamber Series and Smörgåsbord will be kicking off its 19th season at 4 p.m. this Sunday, February 23rd, at the Nordic Heritage Museum (3014 NW 67th St).

The series comprises of five concerts that will feature internationally renowned artists representing Nordic countries.

This Sunday’s concert “Devilishly Danish” will showcase music from Denmark with Danish violinist Mads Tolling and pianist Aaron Otheim. Tolling is a two-time Grammy Award–winning jazz violinist, internationally acclaimed, and former member of Turtle Island Quartet.

The series will continue with four more concerts on March 23, April 27, May 18 and June 1 featuring music from Finland, Denmark, Sweden and Norway. Each concert is presented in a dinner theatre format with a smörgåsbord of delicacies from the featured country. Before the performance concert-goers have free admission to the Nordic Heritage Museum exhibits.

“This series is unique in all of North America,” says artistic director Lisa Bergman. “No other series presents such a spectrum of music history while remaining focused on only one of the five Nordic countries per event. These artists, who hail from all over the world, are true ambassadors of culture who are happy to mingle with audience members following the music.”

Tickets prices (including smörgåsbord) are $47 for Museum Members and $55 for non-Members. Concert-only tickets are $22 for Members and $27 for non-Members. To purchase a season ticket (including smörgåsbord) for all 5 performances tickets cost $200 for Members and $235 for non-Members.
