Back again!- Hello!

Hello dear friends!

What a swim!.... That took a while....  ;-)
Well, I haven't had the time to write here lately, sorry about that. School has started and a lot of work and traveling. I do hope you all had a wonderful summer!
 Right now I have returned back from one of my many trips and it is so wonderful to feel the crispy air and this very bright light outside. The autumn is here, even though summer time is trying not to give in....not yet.
I was up in the mountains with my family not long ago, and the colors were changing. We went hiking and the first thin layer of snow was laying on top of the mountains. It was so beautiful with all these warm colors and the first hello from Mr Winter. 
I am trying to get some pictures from my summertour out on the page, but everything takes time....
I did a concert for a big company in Norway and that took place in the  Nidaros Domen in Trondheim. What a treat! That cathedral is so wonderful to sing in and I haven't sung there since the Royal wedding of Princess Märtha Louise and Ari Behn. It was piano ( Kjetil Bjerkestrand), choir (the same as on the Northern Lights dvd/cd) and me.  A friend of mine sent me this picture, and now I would like to share this with you. Well, I am the long dot on the  left... Hard to see maybe...

Till next time... 
Have a wonderful time! And enjoy the coming of the autumn.

oh hello Sissel!!! great to hear from your journeys again!

wow, that's really impressive, how there is already snow on the mountaintops in early September... out here, even after only like 10cm of snow on the highest peaks, the people start fearing for the apocalypse! lol. And this is the MIDDLE of winter I'm talking about! in Norway you guys have four very nice, distinct seasons... very cool. 8-)

and very cool concert pic, by the way... always wondered what it must be like to sing or to see someone sing in a church.

wish you all the very best, Sissel! lots of joy and satisfaction. hope to see you some day!

enjoy the season!!!

your fan,

p.s. at the end of August, I sent you a very very thankful, appreciative fan letter, to the postal address provided on your official webpage. I understand if you might not have had contact or access with that address... I was just hoping you got to read it because I really put a lot of heartfelt admiration into it. ;-)

Hmm, skulle nok ha satset på en karriere i R-125x8. Menmen, for sent nå. Ikke noe Sissel/Nidarosdomen på meg. Men kansje en gang? Ååh bare tanken! Den helt fantastiske middelalderkirken og helt fantastiske deg. Men plaster på sår, bare noen dager til nå sååå er det min tur:-)
Vandringen mot vest og forseringene av de høye tinde og dype fjorder er nedtegnet og planlagt. Chico har allerede stukket ut kurs.
Takk for koselig hilsen og det fine stemningsbildet kjære Sissel.

Hilsen Gunnar

I just have one question;
The choir you mentioned in the blog, is it the Trondheim choir or Oslo choir or a third one?

Thanks for sharing with us.

Nokia connecting people, joda, men ikke på den nydelige måten du gjør. Ikke det minste rart at mennesker reiser langt for å oppleve deg. Så igjen en stor takk for din varme tilstedeværelse og din fantastisk vakre sang gjennom Missa Triptychon.

Hilsen Gunnar
