Tectonics – an intriguing event

The Embassy was very pleased to support the Icelandic Symphony’s latest project: the Tectonics Festival. We were attracted to it because it was daring, different, and it was aimed at bringing music to young audiences. The opening last night at Harpa was very special. It was a quite unique experience to walk into Harpa where nearly every balcony overlooking the atrium was lined up with young brass musicians playing “Fifty-Eight “ by American composer John Cage. I would recommend anyone interested in listening to something different and unique to attend the remaining performances on March 2 and 3. You will hear the Icelandic music stars of tomorrow.
