The Ocean

To celebrate the "World Oceans Day", Norrby Vocal Ensemble, under the leadership of Mrs Sara Korsgren Norrby, will perform a lunch concert - "The Ocean" - at the Museum of World Culture in Gothenburg, Sweden (8:th of June 2019, 12 pm). The concert has got a water theme inspired by the museum’s exhibition - "Human Nature". It focus on The Ocean, how mankind relates to it and to the nature, includiing several different genres, from Oskar Lindberg to Coldplay. In centrum of it all stands a completely new choir works, "The Ocean", composed by Mrs Kristin Stenerhag, which this day of honor gets its premiere. As a part of the concert also the author, Professor Mr Gustaf Olsson, will hold a speech: "The Ocean – our lifesource and dump", about the global water situation.

When Norrby Vocal Ensemble performs; content, expression and emotions are as important as musicality and clarity. The ensemble got about 30 members and was started in 2013 by Mrs Sara Korsgren Norrby. The choir has held several well-attended theme concerts and performances: "Courage", "With eyes sensitive to green", "A heavenly life", "How fragile we are", "Our moment on earth", "Hope, Hope - that’s how we look on it", to mention some.

The composer of the choral work "The Ocean", Mrs Kristin Stenerhag, is a resident of Värmdö, Stockholm. She got a solid background as a musician and artist and has for many years arranged music for large and small contexts within a variety of different genres. In the performance of  "The Ocean" she explores the possibilities for her music to give the nature a place and voice in the public conversation, a voice that is so important today. "The Ocean" is her first part of a series of music for choir on the same theme.

Welcome to "The Ocean" performed by Norrby Vocal Ensemble at the Museum of  World Culture in Gothenburg, Sweden.
