Innovation Norway in the US
Because of I.N., we're able to travel around the world with support from all of their offices abroad. We are very proud to be profiled on their Visit Norway page
We're also doing our best to take care of our musicians while touring.
A part of that is taking them out shopping for shoes..
The history of Café de Concert
Café de Concert began a few days before the 19th of June 2003 when Aksel Kolstad together with a colleague performed live on Midt i Musikken, a classical music program on NRK radio P2. During the program, the trial concert was announced, to be held at Kastanjen restaurant on Bygdøy Allé in Oslo.
