Star Ensemble on the last Tuesday Night in October

What if the music never ends? What if the night never reaches the next morning? We could all sit and enjoy the beautiful music, the craft of a selected cast of singers that create art on the spot. That is the perfect last Tuesday in the Underwater Pub in October. 

Soprano Ilze Koslovska, mezzosoprano Gro Bente Kjellevold, tenor Thor Inge Falck, pianist Markus Kvits and surprise guest Magne Fremmerlid are creating a night to remember.

Listening to good music, having a beer with his colleagues and promoting the Oslo Opera Festival, bass barritone Ole Jørgen Kristiansen is all smiles for the portrait session.
