TOSPANN Concert and MASTER CLASSES:
Every year PALKO & Co will organize the "TOSPANN-CONCERT": Benedicte in duo with one selected musician. In connection with this concert, MASTER CLASSES for young musicians are also arranged.
WHO CAN PARTICIPATE IN THE MASTERCLASSES?
Thanks to our sponsors, the master classes are a free offering for music lovers of all ages: students at music schools, music high-schools, university students and young professional musicians, mainly from Rogaland, or with some connection to the region. You are welcome to bring your own pianist if you need accompaniment. Benedicte is also available for interaction in some works.
We reward those send in an early registration. There is limited space, so sign up soon if you are interested, and we will puzzle together the schedule and attendance list during early fall. We wish for as many people as possible to participate.
TRANSPORT TO KUKTURBRUK 44/4:
If there are many participants, we will arrange a free bus transport from Stavanger city center to Bru. We will also enjoy a lunch meal for all participants Saturday and Sunday.
An afternoonconcert Sunday is being planned.

Mirijam is a special musician, passionate, and interested in all kinds of repertoire. We have prepared a unique program that we look forward to sharing together, and with the audience.
Mirijam and I also share a special educational interest. Mirijam teaches violin at the Universität der Künste in Berlin. Maybe you were at her concert with SSO in Stavanger in February this year? Now you can get to know her in person.
