Camerarctica is holding its annual candlelight concert in churches right before Christmas.
The group has been playing sweet music by Mozart for thirty-one years and many consider it essential to come from the middle of the Christmas rush into the quiet and candlelight at dusk. This time the group consists of clarinetist Ármann Helgason, violinists Hildigunnur Halldórsdóttir and Bryndís Pálsdóttir, violinists Svava Bernhardðsdóttir and Guðrún Þórarinsdóttir and cellist Sigurður Haldórsson. The program includes splendid works by Mozart, but there are Quartet for clarinet and strings in B flat major. 378 and Quintet for Strings in B Major qv. 174.
As usual, the concert ends with Camerarctica playing a Christmas carol by Mozart.
The concert will take place in Hafnarfjörður Church on Tuesday evening 19 December, in Kópavog Church on Wednesday evening 20 December, in Garden Church on Thursday evening 21 December and in Reykjavík Cathedral on Friday evening 22 December. The concerts are an hour long and they all start at 21.00. Entrance fee is ISK. 3500 and ISK. 2500 for students, disabled and senior citizens and free entry for children.
