Extra events during Iceland Airwaves
with the Iceland Symphony Orchestra
In a collaboration for the ages, the Iceland Symphony Orchestra will perform symphonic arrangements of the exceptional works of Ásgeir.
Ásgeir is one of Iceland’s most successful artists whose distinct Icelandic sound blends acoustic and electronic music with his trademark lilting vocals. The Iceland Symphony Orchestra is one of the leading institutions on the country’s cultural scene who have performed to great acclaim at international festivals and in concert halls.
The Iceland Symphony Orchestra will beautifully reimagine Ásgeir’s signature songs in symphonic arrangements. With this unique collaboration, fans of both symphonic music and Ásgeir’s enchanting melodies will have the opportunity to experience an extraordinary fusion of genres.
This concert reignites the ISO’s collaboration with the Iceland Airwaves festival, which will in the future be an annual event. In previous Airwaves concerts, the ISO has performed with artists such as John Grant, Jóhann Jóhannsson, Emilíana Torrini, and Ólafur Arnalds.
