Solistkoret and conductor Justin Doyle

The Norwegian Soloists' Choir takes part in the anniversary 'Egil Hovland 100 years'!

The Norwegian Soloists' Choir reunites with Justin Doyle, chief conductor of the German RIAS Kammerchor and a sought-after guest conductor worldwide.

Together, they visit Fredrikstad Cathedral in honor of the Egil Hovland anniversary, organized by Kirkemusikk Fredrikstad. The anniversary celebrations span the entire year and culminate during the weekend of October 17-20.

Composer and organist Egil Hovland (1924 – 2013) was one of the most versatile, productive, and frequently performed Norwegian composers in contemporary classical music. This concert features some of Hovland's most renowned choral works: Saul, Jerusalem, and How long, O Lord. The well-known actor Dennis Storhøi will be the narrator in the performance of Saul.
