The Grieg Foundation makes an active commitment to ensuring necessary support and progress, and to contributing in ways that make a difference. Per Gunnar Strømberg Rasmussen/Strømberg Gruppen joined us as Festival Ambassador in 2017. Strømberg Gruppen, like the Festival, considers quality to be one of their core values. Furthermore the company is concerned with taking social responsibility, also through art and culture. The Bergen International Festival has been a recurrent name when the foundation bestows their gifts, and we are very pleased that they wish to take part in this festival tradition in Bergen. Their contribution supports a compre- hensive outdoor programme that enables people of all ages to take part in and watch quality performances – and enjoy the festival atmosphere. His reason for becoming Festival Ambassador, states Rasmussen, is that he believes the Festival is currently experiencing an exciting development. He wishes to contribute to the Festival fulfilling their vision of lifting the pro- gramme locally, nationally, and across borders.
