Every year the philharmonic orchestra hold a family concert where they involve school classes to take part. This year, Emma’s class was asked to make their own version of Grieg’s Dovregubbens Hall (In the Hall of the Mountain King), and play it with them in the great concert hall Grieghallen. It was such an honor, and the kids had so much fun doing this. Since Emma plays the piano regularly, she was asked to be one of the kids doing so during the concert. Here she and a friend is waiting for the piece to start. I like how that young violinist looks at them.
From Bergen Philharmonic Orchestra’s web page:
The Bergen Philharmonic Orchestra dates back to 1765 and is thus one of the world’s oldest orchestras. In 2015 its 250-years anniversary will be celebrated. Edvard Grieg had a close relationship with the orchestra and was its artistic director during the years 1880-82.
