Is your child still suffering from Frozen fever? Cantus, the choir that performs the film’s opening song, comes all the way from Norway. The group sought out U.S. communities with Norwegian ties for venues to perform the famous song and other selections.
The soundtrack of Disney’s Frozen has broken records for most number of weeks at the top of the charts. The Norwegian choir that sings the opening song in that movie is performing in Stoughton on April 24th. The all-girl choir, Cantus, will perform their famous song from Frozen along with other selections on their American Tour, Vuelie.
The performance will be at Stoughton High School’s Performing Arts Center at 7pm on Friday, April 24th. Stoughton’s strong Norwegian heritage is what brought the Cantus Choir to Stoughton. “We looked at communities with Norwegian ties when we planned the Vuelie tour,” said Rolf Egeland, the group’s publicist.
A group including Egeland and Cantus Director, Tove Ramlo-Ystad, visited Stoughton from Norway to make preparations in the fall of 2014. At that time, the school was selected for the performance venue, arrangements were made for the Stoughton High School Concert Choir to have a workshop with the choir and the high schoolers were invited to sing a few songs at the concert.
The Sons of Norway Lodge in Stoughton will provide a dinner for the choir, and host a public reception after the concert. Tickets are $10 and are being sold on-line or at the door (if available). www.showtix4u.com, (search Cantus).
