May 30 - 31, 2015 - Nidaros Cathedral Aksel has had a tremendous week-end trip to Trondheim with Oslo Cathedral Boy´s Choir! The choir was invited by its former conductor Magne H. Draagen, now leading cathedral organist in Nidaros Cathedral, and we have almost lived in the cathedral for two days straight :) Yesterday Aksel got the opportunity to join Magne once again for organ recital. Aksel and Magne repeated the wonderful "Let the bright Seraphim" from their collaborative concert in April, this time with an audience of several hundred visitors to the cathedral. The video from last time has now had more than 1100 hits on YouTube, and comes up as video no. 4 if you search for "boy soprano"!
April 5, 2015 - Nidaros Cathedral The first song from Aksel's concert with Magne H. Draagen was uploaded on YouTube today (see below). There are older videos of Aksel singing "Where'er you walk" on YouTube and Vimeo, but this performance is the best so far. Please enjoy!
