The University of Iceland Concert Series begin well with the talented Una Torfa who will perform in Fjara in Stakkahlíð on Wednesday 15 February at 12.15. Admission is free of charge and everyone is welcome.
Una was one of the brightest star of last year, dazzling an entire nation with her amazing debut, "Flækt og týnd og einmana." She entered the scene with a bang, the overall tone is pure and honest, the songs are bright and beautiful but also playful and mischievous. Her lyrics are witty but with an edge about everyday sorrows and victories which come to life during a concert. We are looking forward to it!
The concert takes place on Wednesday 15 February at 12.15. Location is Fjara, Stakkahlíð, the head location of the University's School of Education. There is a live stream from the concert and a recording will be made available on the concert website. So whether you are in the city, out in the country or anywhere else in the world you can enjoy the wonderful sound from the University concert series and get a taste of the atmosphere on campus. The concert is open to all and free of charge.
The current University concert series began in autumn 2020 with new emphasis and artists from all kinds of genre have performed. There has been a successful live stream of all the concerts and recordings can be found here.
The organiser and artistic director is Arnar Eggert Thoroddsen. He says he is guided by the slogan "University for all - Music for all". Arnar says he takes his slogan seriously and will reflect it in the programme.
