Pasifika Voices' repertoire spans many styles, and for this particular concert they have put together a programme based on the islanders' deep religious roots. md At Askøy and Austevoll they will perform opera hits by composers such as Verdi, Rossini and Mozart, languorous operettas by Lehár and songs by Grieg. Pasifika Voices is led by Tuilagi Igelese Ete, a Samoan composer, arranger and conductor, who is known as the choirmaster in the film series Lord of the Rings. Through song we glimpse the young singers' family histories and culture. L IL L E LU N G E GÅ RDSVA N N These concerts are a gateway to the world of opera for those who want to experience some of the best the genre has to offer.

Sven Sören Beyer from phase 7, the group behind the multimedia performance Murmuration at the Bergen International Festival in 2013, returns to Bergen. The German artist transforms the small lake into a light sculpture accompanied by a concert that can only be heard through a special set of headphones. The score – Grieg's very own Piano Concerto in A minor and a new work by Per Nørgård – is taken from the concert Nordic Prism earlier the same evening. "We create an atmosphere to suit the music, not disturb it. It will be a kind of visualisation of Grieg's Piano Concerto in A minor in which we mix high tech and projections with lanterns, dancers, paddlers and perhaps even an oselver – a traditional Norwegian rowing boat. I am interested in triggering feelings through advanced technology," says Beyer, who also created the grand programme for the 25th anniversary of the fall of the Berlin Wall last year. Bring something to sit on, settle down by the water with headphones on and let the festival mood set in. Get ready to enjoy music in a new setting!
