Cross country stunt in Holmenkollen

Holmenkollen skifestival invites choirs and choristers to a wild choir stunt!   

On Saturday, March 9, we want to delight performers and audiences with beautiful sing-alongs! Join us in performing two songs that set the mood and lift the experience to new heights.   

The songs are performed before the start and during the break by RAW AIR jump men.   

As a thank you for your participation, we will offer each choir member up to three tickets to the entire Saturday program. It will be a day filled with fun, music and memorable moments that you and the audience will never forget!   

We would like everyone to dress in red, white and blue.   

Deadline for registration: March 7  

We hope this can be the start of long card traditions in Holmenkollen!
