My first Christmas concert

December 28, 2016

Hello guys! I hope your holidays have been awesome. I must say that I had a very special Christmas celebration. First of all, this was our first Christmas in Trondheim and it was very special to be able to spend Christmas in our own apartment. I have not celebrated Christmas with my daughter for many years and I really appreciated to have her with me this year.

In October we decided that we wanted to attend a Christmas concert this Christmas and ordered tickets right away. I did not know what to expect since I had never attended a Christmas concert before and I was predicting some boring hours in my head but I did not want to let my boyfriend down so I said that I would happily join them at the concert. When the everyday life was back I totally forgot about the tickets until December when my boyfriend reminded me about the Christmas concert tickets that we had ordered.

My father-in-law came to town early that day and waited for us since we were at work. When we came home we realised that we were in a hurry since the concert started 2 hours before the time we had scheduled. I have never gotten myself ready that fast before and we grabbed a cab to town. We came into the concert house and I was ready for two looong borring hours, or so I thought, but I was completely wrong.

There were 3 guys on the stage and actually one of them is from an island close to where my father-in-law lives. They varied between singing and making jokes on stages and I was laughing so hard of their jokes. I was stunned by how they managed to make us laugh and at same time bring Christmas atmosphere to the room. The two hours went very fast and when the concert finished I did not want it to end. We will definitely attend a Christmas concert and we will consider very strongly to go and listen to Nordic Tenors next year as well. They were just amazing and we had a really good time. I must say that I had a very good experience at my first Christmas concert ever and I will recommend you to check out the group.

I will post a little clip of the concert so that you can judge for yourself. They also sing opera that I am a huge fan of.

    How utterly magical….you paint such vivid images…and, the video was fantastic…”Oh Holy Night” is probably my favourite Christmas hymn, and I love the anticipation of the note on “divine!”–and it never fails to grip me with its beauty…I can’t hear it without being overcome with barely-stifled emotion….given that I am alone right now, I let my emotions sync with the amazing crescendo….thank you so much for sharing…you and your blog are awesome 🙂

    I have been to many Christmas concerts in Miami and enjoyed each one of them.
