Stille Natt Hellige Natt 2012

“The mother of all Christmas-concerts” was the first to travel around in the time before Christmas with professional artists. After 25 years on the road, one could safely say, that “Stille Natt, Hellige Natt has become a tenacious tradition. Many artists have been in and out of the ensemble and this year it all peaks with an anniversary show, with 5 of our most established artists on the poster.

Elisabeth Andreassen –  is one of our most popular artists. She has done shows, cabaret, revues and sold albums like few others in the country.
Tor Endresen –  has been called a “Musical chameleon” because he masters almost every musical genre.
Alexander Rybak  – made a fantastic record of number of votes when he won the Eurovision Song Contest with “Fairytale”. Besides his qualities in singing, Alexander is also a God-blessed violinist, something he will demonstrate at the concert this year.
Marian Aas Hansen –  is joining for the 12th year in a row and to many of the most faithful in the audience, it is not Christmas before she has sung “Himmelen i min favn”.
Rune Larsen –  has done Christmas concerts since 1984. The last 11 years, he has shared his Christmas-thoughts in “Stille Natt, Hellige Natt”. Most of his career has taken place in churches all over the country – Not only at Christmas.

And for the thirteenth time in a row, the Strømme-foundation has been granted a percentage of the ticket-sales, something that has provided almost 5 million NOK in total,  for HIV-infected children in Africa and homeless children in South-America.
