The Male Voice Choir Gullgutane from Suldal, Norway

The Male Voice Choir Gullgutane from Suldal, Norway performs their musical Farvel du Moder Norge (Farewell to Mother Norway).

Farvel du Moder Norge is a tale of emigration from Suldal, Norway to America in the mid 19th century. The audience is invited to experience the challenges present in Norwegian life at the time; the hard decisions to leave home for a new world “over there;” and the fresh experiences waiting as the travelers disembark from the ship filled with a longing for all they’ve left behind.

The production is brought to life through the use of storytelling, shanties, traditional Norwegian folk songs, and even a few American songs. Drawing on the talents of sixty actors, singers, and musicians ranging in age from eleven to seventy-five, Farvel du Moder Norge will appeal to anyone who has felt a longing for home or the call to greener pastures.
