In 2017 the Norwegian artist queen Wenche Myhre celebrated her 70th birthday! The event was celebrated with a solid show in Oslo Spektrum, which was sold out shortly after the tickets were put up for sale.
We are pleased to finally have Wenche in Tromsø! She will collaborate with Tromsø Storband under the leadership of the Swedish composer and organizer Anders Eljas. It will be an eventful journey when the legendary artist summarizes her career in a fabulous way. Anders Eljas, known from his collaboration with Abba and as well as contributing to the original launch of Chess in London, leads the big band with a safe hand.
It is a pleasure for Tromsø Storband to open the fall season under the direction of Anders Eljas! The band is known for its many successful concerts with international artists such as Lisa Simone, Jon Faddis, Larry Carlton and Randy Brecker. This is going to swing!
Tromsø Storband was launched in 2004 and is one of Norway's best big bands. The band consists mainly of professional practitioners with the necessary supplement of students at the Conservatory of Music, the University of Tromsø and talented amateurs. The band has played in many different genres such as swing, funk, pop, rock and more modern music with dense vocals and advanced rhythms.
This will be a wonderful night you will not miss!
Doors open at 6PM.
