Home after a hectic trip around the world

Date: 16/06/2014

First a trip to India May 16. To the Norwegian Embassy in Delhi that has invited me to play a solo concert to celebrate the 200 anniversary of the Norwegian constitution. Then, two hours after the last tone was played in India, directly to Canada to do the same for the Norwegian embassy in Ottawa.

I also had time for a concert with the Maple Leaf Brass Band the day after. Then immediately down to Bloomington, Indiana, USA, to play a recital at ITEC. International Tuba and Euphonium Conference. Friday May 23 I performed a world premiere of my own tuba concerto in an arrangement for brass band. After ITEC I had a few days to relax on Bahamas before heading for Quebec in Canada and the music camp Domaine Forget.
The best part: the tuba made it home in one piece after five weeks 17 flights and 28.639 kilometers!
