School Project with the Music of Gunnar Kjeldaas

Recently, Arnulf Mattes and Michael Custodis rediscovered the music of Gunnar Kjeldaas, who was arrested during the Norwegian teachers‘ strike in 1942. During his imprisonment in Elvenes he composed extraordinary songs, the „Fangesangar frå Kirkenes“. With the support of his granddaughter Anna-Ma Kjeldaas at the moment the „Nordic music“-team produces a documentary about Gunnar Kjeldaas‘ story. Additionally, the Marienschule Münster developed a school project based on the „Fangesangar“ and will present the results in Münster’s Petri-church on June 13. Anna-Ma Kjeldaas will be attending the concert.
