Foyer Matinee: Susanna
The Norwegian singer Susanna Wallumrød is known as the founder of ‘Susanna and the Magical Orchestra’ (2000), her duo with pianist Morten Qvenild. ‘Wild Dog’ is her eighth album so far, if you include the three albums with ‘Susanna and the Magical Orchestra’, her album ‘Jeg Vil Hjem Til Menneskene’ and the recent ECM album with Giovanna Pessi.
Susanna is praised for her interpretations of well-known songs like Jolene, Hallelujah and Love Will Tear Us Apart. She has also proved to be a unique songwriter with a very personal style. Her performance lingers in the mind. Not only does Susanna’s captivating voice grab the public’s attention, her concerts are pure magic. A whole Sunday on cloud nine …
This concert is part of Foyer Matinee, a series of aperitif concerts in Handelsbeurs during the flower market every third Sunday of the month.
This evening, Susanna Wallumrød performs at Handelsbeurs with Giovanna Pessi. Together with the Swiss baroque harpist she pays tribute to Henry Purcell in the concert ‘If Grief Could Wait’.
New: Foyer Soirée
On some Monday evenings, the foyer of Handelsbeurs transformes in a cosy music club.
Each Foyer Soirée a musician or band introduces a new project. Listen to young Ghentian talent or established artists and begin your week with a bang.
