I am thrilled to have an opportunity to visit Norway, Edvard Grieg's homeland, this November. I will be studying the Norwegian language and working with experts on Grieg's song repertoire. Updates on what I am seeing, hearing, and learning will follow.
The Royal Norwegian Embassy and the Association for the Advancement of Scandinavian Studies in Canada and the Ontario Arts Council have given me grants toward this project.
