Pearls of Icelandic Song invite the audience to get acquainted with classical Icelandic music where the cream of Icelandic songs, folk songs, hymns and national songs are performed. The concerts come in slightly different variations but are all with English translations and moderation so foreign visitors can experience the exciting world of Icelandic music. Poets and songs are presented in English along with the stories behind the music. Performers are young talented local singers and pianists mixed with older and more experienced artists.
