Revels Nordic Midsummer Gala

 

Revels Nordic Midsummer Gala scheduled for June 12th  has been cancelled due to an unexpected shortfall in advance ticket sales.  HOWEVER, building on the support we’ve received from the Nordic community, including the Honorary Consuls of Denmark, Finland, Iceland, Norway and Sweden, we are planning a full slate of Nordic concerts and events for this year.

Please join us for these wonderful celebrations:

Pop Up Nordic Concert,  June 12, 2018 

Northern Lights: A Christmas Revels Preview Concert,  November 9, 2018

The Christmas Revels: A Nordic Celebration of the Winter Solstice, December 14-29 


Revels Nordic Midsummer Gala, this year's annual fundraiser, will be a night of revelry, food, dance and song, plus a special Live Auction. Join us as we celebrate the cultures and traditions of Denmark, Finland, Iceland, Norway and Sweden!

 

We are delighted to have joining us as Honorary Chairs for our Gala:

Honorary Consul of Denmark Jacob Friis

Honorary Consul General of Finland Leonard Kopelman

Honorary Consul of Iceland James Francis Gerrity III

Honorary Consul of Norway Terje Korsnes

Honorary Vice Consul of Sweden Ginga Sewerin-Olsson

 

An elegant sit-down dinner will include  Midsummer culinary delights. Besides delicious food, enjoy a taste of the music from our upcoming Nordic Christmas Revels with performances by Swedish musician, Sunniva Brynnel, accordionist and vocalist; David Coffin, Revels Artist-in-Residence; and Finnish violinist Sara Pajunen. Plus age-old folk dances, like the Telemark springar of Norway, will also be performed. Guests will also enjoy bidding on some fabulous live auction items (a trip to St. Croix, anyone?) to round out this year's Revels Midsummer celebration!
