Kamfest // September 19 - 26
Finally, after almost two years in isolation, it is once again time for festivals! This year's Chamber Music Festival (Kammermusikk Festival) is called Udig-festival, which stands for un-digital festival and takes place in the city-centre area, spread out across multiple venues.
At the Trondheim Chamber Music festival, you will find all kinds of events: from chamber music in Nidarosdomen, to their “hjemme hos” concept, which means “at home with” and is a series of events where you visit different artists' homes and they tell you about their works!
In addition to this, the Trondheim Chamber Music Festival 2021 composer is the internationally-acclaimed Caroline Shaw. She became the youngest winner of the Pulitzer award in 2013 with a piece written for the Grammy-winning “Roomful of Teeth,” in which she is also a member. Shaw has collaborated with Renée Fleming, Inon Barnatan, Dawn Upshaw with Sō Percussion and Gil Kalish, Anne Sofie von Otter, the Philharmonia Baroque, and the LA Philharmonic. Even if you have not heard of any of these, you’ve surely heard about Kanye West and Nas? Because she has produced for these two as well, on Life of Pablo, Ye, and NASIR.
It is time to get out and enjoy festivals once again. This is definitely on our top must-see list!
