Beloved Icelandic composer Haukur Tómasson has written a piece made specifically with bass singer Kristinn Sigmundsson in mind. The collection consists of ten songs inspired by the poems of Gyrðir Elíasson. CAPUT ensemble will perform with Kristinn, and actor Orri Ágústsson will perform a reading of poems. The performance is said to be designed with the acoustics of the church in mind, so it’s safe to expect a unique, site-specific experience.

The concert is at Breiðholtskirkja (The Indian tent) in Kópavogur and begins at 16:00. Admission 2,000 ISK, see the Facebook event for more info.
