Next Thursday, Welcome This Norwegian Brass Ensemble to the Empire Theatre

Next Thursday, put your hands together for the internationally touring group tenThing! This Norwegian ten-piece brass ensemble will blow your mind with interpretations of music’s greatest works by Mozart, Grieg, and more. This all-female group is one you’ll certainly want to see on April 4th at Empire Theatre!

Formed in 2007 by Norwegian trumpeter Tine Thing Helseth as a fun and exciting collaboration between musical friends, the ten-piece, all-female brass ensemble tenThing have firmly established themselves on the international scene to great acclaim. tenThing are celebrated for their commitment to outreach and access to music through a diverse repertoire that spans from Mozart to Weill, Grieg to Bernstein, and Lully to Bartok. The group work closely with Norwegian guitarist and arranger Jarle Storløkken in the arrangement of scores for the ensemble, enabling them to play pieces of differing instrumentations.

tenThing first established themselves in performances all over their native Norway, eventually delighting a huge national audience by opening the 2011 Norwegian Grammy Awards. Soon after, the group came to international prominence at the BBC Proms in a performance at London’s Cadogan Hall.

Elsewhere in Europe, they have performed at a wide range of prestigious festivals and concert halls, including the Schleswig-Holstein, Beethoven Bonn, Gstaad, MDR Musiksommer, Mecklenburg-Vorpommern, Rheingau, Bodensee, Engadin, Merano, Thüringer Bachwochen, and Bremen festivals in Central Europe, the Merano and Sienna festivals in Italy, the NCPA Beijing May Festival, and Moscow’s House of Music.

Gather your friends and make plans to attend tenThing’s debut at Empire Theatre next Thursday, April 4th! Tickets begin at $29 and may be purchased online at www.artssa.org.
