A late November Night in the Underwater Pub

This Tuesday night in the Underwater Pub had something special to offer: Duets and a pianist going into the zone. Bass Bo Elley, soprano Marianne Folkestad Jahren, mezzosoprano Gro Bente Kjellevold and pianist Reza Aghamir make the evening worth remembering

Mezzosoprano Gro Bente Kjellevold is radiating the lyrics of her passionate French song into the room. The words appear carefully chosen and when she sings of orange trees beside a lake I swear I smelled that sweet citrus scent in the air.
