Together with Jack Vreeswijk, Ryfylke Visegruppe, Kjell Haave and his musicians, SSO offers a varied program of classical music and songs. Our own clarinetist, Håkon Vestly, is the evening's host.
The concert will be performed in loving memory of the orchestra's head of personnel, Arve Rosell. Arve came from Sweden to the Stavanger Symphony Orchestra in 1973 and remained here for the rest of his life. For more than 30 years, he was an oboist in the orchestra before he became a head of personnel in the administration. His effort for SSO, as a musician, as head of personnel and a highly respected and caring colleague for over 44 years, can hardly be overestimated. A memorial concert for Arve in Fartein Valen is only natural. His strategic mind and strong contact network made him a key driver in the realization of the new concert hall.
We hope many people will enjoy this concert, which will be entirely in the spirit of Arve. Additionally the concert will support cancer research in Norway.
