Scandinavian Music at Norway House

The Edvard Grieg Society of Minnesota is pleased to announce a Scandinavian Song residency featuring Dr. Anna Hersey.

A University of Minnesota alumnus and Fulbright scholar, Dr. Hersey recently published her first book, “Scandinavian Song: A Guide to Swedish, Norwegian, and Danish Diction”, a practical guide to help singers, voice teachers, and choral conductors unlock the mysteries and challenges of the Scandinavian vocal repertoire.
