Mona Krogstad: Serenity Now feat. Kristoffer Lo (commissioned work)

Mona Krogstad won the #huninvisterer grant from DNB in ​​2023. This year she returns to the festival with the commissioned work Serenity Now, which takes us into a musical landscape where hope and reflection are at the center.

Concert start: 16:30 Single ticket price: NOK 420

In a world characterized by constant noise and unrest invites Serenity Now the listener into a musical landscape where hope and reflection are at the center. Through lyrical melodies and lively interplay, the work explores the contrast between the powerful, insistent and peaceful, meditative moments.

Inspired by themes such as love, communication and spirituality, the work seeks to explore the deep aspects of being human. Mona Krogstad is fascinated by art's infinite ability to communicate, and through "Serenity Now" she wants to encourage the listener to reflect on their inner self.
