The last few weeks have been filled with uncertainty. Everyone has in one way or another been touched by the severity of the current pandemic. We find that art is one of the things that has gotten us through these difficult times. Therefore we won't cancel the festival, but make a few changes so that we can continue the Summer Concerts long traditions.
The Summer Concerts will be from July 2-12 with concerts on Thursdays to Sundays both weeks. We are following the guidelines closely. We have been inspired by the many artist who have created new platforms for their art, and have come up with these possibilities for this years Summer Concerts:
- The concerts will take place in the Skálhot Cathedral with an audience. The seating and number of audience will follow the guidelines. One will be able to reserve tickets for free through our homepage.
- The concerts will be streamed online so that you can experience it from a safe distance.
The Skálholt Summer Concerts will launch the programme throughout May. Next week we'll make public who are the composers in residence.
