Since two of our musicians have cancelled, we are now announcing two new musicians for this year’s festival. We welcome the pianist Jean-Sélim Abdelmoula and tenor Johannes Held. Both arrive in Lofoten at Sunday and will be playing during the opening concert Monday.
Thursday afternoon we received a message that both pianist Ingrid Fliter and tenor Thorbjørn Gulbrandsøy are prevented from attending the festival. We have been looking forward to having them here, but have full understanding of the inconvenience that prevents them from traveling to Lofoten.
Despite short notice, we are very grateful to introduce both pianist Jean-Sélim Abdelmour and tenor Johannes Held as new artists. They are both international names that we have had in the spotlight already. They both arrive before the opening concert and will therefore participate already then.
During the week there will be minor changes in the program. Unfortunately, we do not have the opportunity to make changes to printed material (program book and brochure). However, it will be possible to see the updated program digitally. Changes will be announced during the concerts.
