Recently the finale of the Grieg International Choir Festival was held in Grieghallen. Three parallel singing competitions filled three intense days with a broad range of repertoire, performance styles and hard, hard work by the attending singers and conductors. Grieg International Choir Competition, Nina [Grieg] Solo Competition and Syng for Oss.
This broad range of repertoire, techniques and whole-pictured performances shown at such a high competent level impressed and inspired me. Most importantly it challenged my view on creating music.
