our new concert hall

Our big piece of news – Reykjavík’s opening their brand new brilliant concert hall this week. We’re singing Beethoven’s 9th with Vladimir Askhenazy – first rehearsal with him today. Totally loved it. This house is SO going to be a huge asset, not only to Iceland’s music scene but also to our tourism – I just read that tenor singer Jonas Kaufmann’s concert two weeks from now is sold out, 1800 seats and 300 of those sold abroad. Don’t of course know if any of those buyers chose to travel to Iceland for the concert – but you never know.

Anyway, the concert halls and conference centers are pretty well full booked for the next year already, apparently.

Do take a look here. We’re totally excited!

    Well, I don’t have doubts that those abroad who bought tickets for Jonas Kaufmann’s concert want to use their tickets, actually there should be hardly any other reason to buy a ticket, or :-)? Jonas has many fans all over the world and many of them are used to travel for his performances. Looking forward to get to know Iceland and the new concert hall, greetings from Germany.

    Adina, haha that’s not what I meant at all! Was rather thinking if the concert brought them to Iceland or if they were planning to come here anyway and bought the tickets as a bonus :) Be very welcome here!
