In December 2008, NYOS will produce a three city US concert tour of “Operas of the Sea: A Norwegian Christmas Concert” in NYC (December 10th, St. Andrew’s Music Society at Madison Avenue Presbyterian Church), Chicago (December 8th, Chicago Cultural Center) and Washington DC (December 14th, National Gallery of Art) featuring 4 prominent Norwegian opera singers from Kulturentusiastene who will have been selected by a competition in Oslo. In September of 2009, Kulturentusiastene will mount a production inviting NYOS’ American artists to perform with the Norwegian Radio Orchestra at their Opera Festival and Ball in Oslo. NYOS’ artists will perform in Oslo on Stage 2 of the newly built opera house. These concerts are made possible by the generous support of The Royal Norwegian Embassy The American-Scandinavian Foundation Sons of Norway.
