2 April, 2009

The benefit performance at Ole Bull Scene raised a nice sum. Sølvi Rolland who coordinated the event was afraid the recent financial crisis would affect the event, but Bergen replied positively.

The event raised a total of 656.400 Norwegian kroner. Last year’s event in comparison, raised 643 000 kroner.

Mads Gilbert, Åsne Seierstad, Gustav Lorentzen, Christine Hope, Nordic Tenors, Torhild Sivertsen, Bjørn Jensen, Fargespill and a group from the local “Les Miserables” crew participated event free of charge. Sponsors covered expenses such as food, transportation and accommodation.
