Come join us for a journey through Norway one beautiful song after another.
This is the sixth of seven concerts over three years presenting the complete songs of Edvard Grieg, sponsored by the Northwest Edvard Grieg Society.
First Thursday Salons are inspired by a 19th century tradition of informal and intimate performances at home. Audiences are encouraged to wear comfortable attire, bring their friends, and engage in a highly social and interactive musical experience. The series features communal seating at sophisticated tables with beer and wine bar service available in the hall and throughout each performance. Snacks and other non-alcoholic beverages are also available.
