Spring Lunchtime Concert programme:


Strings of Joy

Our first concert will take place on Wednesday 1 February, and is presented by Corde di Gioia, or Strings of Joy. The trio chose this name because they lived in Italy for eight years and feel a deep love for Italian language and culture. The ensemble consists of soprano, Maria Johannsen - who studied singing with concert singer and anthroposoph Jytte Carl in Copenhagen - and her daughters Anna (19), cello and Giuly (15), violin. The trio was created in 2010 and has performed many concerts since then with a repertoire embracing all periods from the Medieval to our times.

All three also play the piano and sing, which gives them many possibilities to accompany each other, as well as sing three part settings. The trio will be presenting a programme of music around the theme of 'Nordic Spring' and will feature music by Grieg, Nielsen, Sibelius, and many more.
