Music at the Museum


Written May 30, 2022

Mostly Nordic concert "From Sweden with Love" in February

On Wednesday, June 1, 2022, at 7:30 pm at the National Nordic Museum, the Rain City Symphony performs their first live concert of 2022 in Osberg. The featured artist for this performance is violist Annie Chang-Center, performing Bruch’s Romanze in F major for viola and orchestra. Under the baton of Teresa Metzger Howe, we will also be performing Bernstein’s Candide overture and Coleridge-Taylor’s Petite Suite de Concert. Tickets are available through the Symphony’s website at

Later in June, The Northwest Edvard Grieg Society and the Thalia Symphony join forces to bring you Grieg’s incidental music to Ibsen’s immortal play, Peer Gynt, reviving the larger-than-life characters and epic story of adventure and misadventure in the realms of the mystical and earthly. Taking place on Saturday, June 18, at 4pm, tickets are available through the Museum’s Events Calendar.

Norwegian violinist Idunn Lohne and Seattle-based cellist Christine Lee will perform selections from Grieg and others in a free community concert on July 9, 3pm, at the Museum as part of the closing month festivities for From Dawn to Dusk: Nordic Art from Sweden's Nationalmuseum.

Mostly Nordic returns for its final two concerts of the season later this summer. From East to West and Back Again takes place on July 10 at 2pm and Danish Dreams: The Songs of Peter Heise will be held August 14 at 2pm. Tickets for both concerts can be purchased through the Museum’s Events Calendar.

It’s a full summer of music at the Museum. Enjoy!
