In the ‘season of awakening’ the River Stories project is a joint performance resulting from the coming together of two choirs: NorrlandsOperan’s children’s choir and a children’s joik choir. This is a meeting of not just two choirs but of two different cultures and traditions. The project facilitates a cultural and musical exchange in which new life is breathed into old traditions thanks to some one hundred children and young people. A new choir piece by the composer Madeleine Isaksson is commissioned for the project and will be performed in Umeå during the opening ceremony the 1st of February. This performance is the finale for the project, which has been running since autumn 2012.
Manaj vuöllie is connected to the project River Stories.
