Join us for the Tine Things Helseth Concert at the North Dakota Museum of Art on Sunday, November 25, 2pm.
Tine Thing Helseth, Trumpet
Tine Thing Helseth is a Norwegian trumpet soloist specializing in classical repertoire. Now twenty-four years old, Helseth started to play trumpet at the age of seven and is one of the leading trumpet soloists of her generation. This star of the future is already widely recognized in the classical music world. She won the 2009 Borletti-Buitoni Trust Fellowship, was named ”Newcomer of the Year” at the 2007 Norwegian Grammy Awards (the first classical artist ever to be nominated), the Luitpold Prize as the most outstanding and interesting young artist of the year at the Kissinger Summer Festival, and the prestigious Prince Eugen’s Culture Prize in Stockholm.
Myra Presents: Sunday Concerts in the Galleries
After years of quiet support, the Museum decided it was long past time to honor the local Myra Foundation for its gifts to classical music. The concerts range far and wide from violinist Alejandro Drago’s newest venture, Tango Rendezvous International, to pianist Sarah Cahill’s celebration of the 100th birthday of John Cage. From the premier, post-classical string quartet, Ethel, to Norway’s rising star, trumpeter Tine Thing Helseth. The series concludes with Maya, a trio born out of the chamber music tradition, which stretches the boundaries of the classical chamber concert while creating appealing programs that weave together music of diverse traditions. Join us Sunday afternoons at 2 pm in the beautiful galleries of the North Dakota Museum of Art.
Concerts are followed by a reception with hors d'oeuvres and wine. Parking is free in the lot to the north of the Museum entrance.
