The Mostly Nordic Chamber Series and Smörgåsbord will be continuing its 20th season at 4 p.m. this Sunday, March 8, at the Nordic Heritage Museum (3014 NW 67th St).
The entire series comprises of five concerts that feature internationally renowned artists representing Nordic countries.
This Sunday’s concert “Denmark: Sparklers and Marzipan – a Birthday Salute” will showcase music from Denmark with the Northwoods Wind Quintet. Songs featured are set to include Clarke’s March for the Prince of Denmark, and a potpourri of popular works such as Prokofieff’s Peter and the Wolf, Sousa’s Liberty Bell March, Roupen Shakarian’s Alpine Morn, and some PDQ Bach.
The series will continue with three more concerts on April 12, May 3 and May 31 featuring music from Sweden, Norway and Iceland. 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.”
