The project Ungsy is a cooperation between The Northern Lights Festival, Kulturskolen I Tromsø (the local music school), the Arctic Philharmonic, students from the Music Conservatory at the UiT – The Arctic University of Norway and local amateurs.
The goal with this project is that local youth can get the experience of playing in an orchestra together with professional musicians. There will be great music and great meetings between young musicians and professionals.
On the programme this year you will find music by Verdi, Rimsky-Korsakov, Schubert, Grieg, Warlock and Dvořák.
The conductor this year is Per Kristian Skalstad and the soloist is Håkon Rasmussen, Trombone.
