Jazz evening at the Embassy

Nordic Jazz at the Embassy

On June 22, in collaboration with DC Jazz Festival and the Embassy of Iceland, the Embassy hosted a concert as part of the 16th annual Nordic Jazz Festival.

The performers were the Ole Mathisen Renderings Quartet from Norway and Sunna Gunnlaugs Trio from Iceland. Sunna's work has been described as "elegantly bridging soul-searching passages with uncluttered swing." Ole is an award-winning saxophonist and composer, as well as the head of Columbia University's Louis Armstrong Jaxx Performance Program. 

The Embassy thanks the artists and attendees for an excellent evening.
