The Reykjavík Chamber Orchestra Christmas Concert

The Reykjavík Chamber Orchestra celebrates it’s 42nd year of  Christmas concerts with Baroque music by composers who worked in northern Europe.

We travel from London to Potsdam and further north to Denmark, Norway and Sweden. To compensate that Classical music from the Continent did not reach Iceland until the late 19th century, the Reykjavík Chamber Orchestra will perform Icelandic folk songs and Christmas

Carols arranged in baroque style by the members of the orchestra.
