On February 9th, 2022, renowned songwriter Ole Paus celebrates his 75th birthday.
The Northern Lights Festival is proud to mark the occasion along with Tora Augestad and the NyNorsk Brass Quintet. They will perform new music written by composer Marcus Paus, who is also the son of Ole Paus. The music is based on Ole Paus' own lyrics.
By combining contemporary music with performing arts and literature, the NyNorsk Brass Quintet has created a completely distinctive expression and made a name for themselves both nationally and abroad.
Marcus Paus is one of Norway’s most renowned composers. Singer Tora Augestad regularly collaborates with orchestras and ensembles around the world and has previously visited the Northern Lights Festival with concerts such as "From bars to barricades" and "Schubert Lounge". The lyrics are by the guest of honour himself, Ole Paus. Perhaps he even wrote of them while staying here in Tromsø.
Tromsø has a special place in Ole Paus’ heart. Just as he has a special place in ours.
Happy birthday Ole!
