Kerstconcert Noorse Kerk
Dec 13, 2019 at 19:30 - 21:30
Welcome to the third year of Julie & Andreas’ traditional Christmas Concert, held in the hand-painted interior of the 1914 wooden seamen’s church at the heart of Rotterdam.
As the serene chords ringing from Julies harp strings are combined with delicately chosen notes from Andreas’ bandoneon, the audience know they can completely relax into the music. With this year’s special focus on Norwegian traditional folk tunes, the duo is proud to invite guest star Gunnhild Sundli – a folk singer with a crystal clear voice, famous from her band “Gåte”.
After a completely full house on last year’s concert, there will be arranged two concerts this year: 12th and 13th of December starting at 19:30. Included in the tickets is a serving of coffee and waffles. With 4433 visitors on last year’s fair, the Norwegian Seamen’s Church of Rotterdam is well known for its yearly Christmas Market (7th-10th + 16th-17th of November, don’t miss it!), but these concerts provide the chance to experience the magical room in a more peaceful setting. The popular harp and bandoneon duo will premiere some of their latest original repertoire, but most of all these concerts will establish what in Norway is known as “The Christmas Peace” (“Juleroen”). Welcome.
