Downtown Concert

Tonight there was a big family concert downtown. Not only was the concert free, buses tonight were also free. So we joined friends Martin, Elisabeth, and Frøy and bused down to the Torg. The evening was cool but the square was hopping, with 6 or 7 bands playing for 4 hours. One of the events was the first public performance of a tribute to the oil industry, written by many well-known Norwegian composers. The piece featured orchestra, vocalists, and a troup of dancers that were all very good.

To close the show was Kaizer's Orchestra, a very cool band from Stavanger. Afterwards, there was a short fireworks show overhead. Fantastic!

Here's a video of one of Kaizer's Orchestra's most popular songs, "Ompa til du dør", or "Oompa till you die".
