The Chamber Music Festival: Vårfestspillene has started!

Every year the students at the Department of Classical Music and Music Education organize the Chamber Music Festival Vårfestspillene.

The students at the department of Classical Music and Music Education are excited about Vårfestspillene

25 students, pianists, woodwind players, string players and singers, will participate in this year’s festival. In addition to several lessons at the university, two  concerts will also be held. One at Gimle Gård and one at UiA (sal 1). They are both free and open to the public.

Valuable experience

Cordula Hacke, professor II at the university, has also taken initiative to the festival. 

-It is a great asset to the Department of Classical Music and Music Education to have this festival, not only as a preparing and performing opportunity, but also as a means for the students to organize and plan the whole event.  This will be very valuable in their professional lives later on, Hacke says.

-We are extremely fortunate

-These concerts are an excellent venue for us as students, and musicians, to practice in a concert situation. This type of interaction increases our adaptability to various forms of music, musicians and rehearsals. There’s also an organizing phase in this that requires good communication, planning of practice and methodological approaches that are adapted to more people. We are extremely fortunate to have the opportunity to do this and have so incredibly skilled and committed professors backings us up. We look forward to this and hope to get as many as possible with them, says Ken-Roger Halvorsen Sund, student at the Department of Classical Music and Music Education.
