Opening ceremony for Nordklang on June 26 at 18.00 in Helsingborg Concert Hall
This evening, we gather all the festival participants, workshop leaders, conductors, chancellors and volunteers for a musical ceremony in the concert hall’s grand hall. The evening offers both solemn speech and singing, where the vocal group Vocal Six and the Norwegian youth choir NUK are at the center. Then we hope for wonderful singing led by tonight’s two conference owners – the festival’s artistic leader Anders Jalkéus and chairman of the Swedish Driving Association, Karin Eklundh.
