Description: The Norwegian Boy Choir ‘Sølvguttene’ will be performing a lunchtime recital of choral music at Christchurch Priory as part of their tour of the UK. The ‘boys of silver’, led by Oslo-born singer and conductor Frikk Heide-Steen, will be performing a varied programme of repertoire, from traditional Norwegian folk music to classical works by Handel and Mozart in addition to the music of Andrew Lloyd Webber.
Since their founding in 1940, Sølvguttene has been a cultural ambassador for Norway with 150 performances a year, with kings, queens and presidents being amongst the audience members. The choir also has a history of journeying to London for Christmas for the lighting of the big Norwegian Christmas Tree in Trafalgar Square, an annual gift from the people of Norway to the UK.
