Scandinavian Cultural Center presents The Aurora Ensemble Midnight Sun
August 19 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm
THE AURORA ENSEMBLE: MIDNIGHT SUN
The Aurora Ensemble brings a world premiere performance to our Nordic Hall titled Midnight Sun with Arias and Dance Music from Old Scandinavia!
Join the SCC for a magical and fantastical mid-summer themed program of Scandinavian music performed on historical instruments from the 16th, 17th, and 18th centuries. The program will feature a variety of composers and pieces from Sweden, Finland, Norway, and Denmark. Most excitingly, in collaboration with Bo Andersson of the Uppsala Universitet, the Aurora Ensemble will perform the new world premieres of several stunning pieces housed in the Düben Collection of Manuscripts in Uppsala, Sweden, including instrumental dance pieces by Andras Düben, a cantata by Swedish noblewoman Johanna Eleonora de la Gardie, and the only surviving piece composed by Queen Ulrika Eleonora of Sweden.
Join SCC at Nordic Hall on August 19 to be a part of this historical event!
