Prøysenfest!

Prøysenfest!

Prøysenfest! is a national celebration of Alf Prøysen for children and young people. With financial help from Sparebankstiftelsen DNB, JM Norway will through 2014 celebrate Prøysen’s diverse oeuvre through both a support for local initiatives throughout the country, through collaborations with organizations and institutions, as well as his own productions. The funds will benefit many children and young people in various ways throughout the year.

Alf Prøysen was an important cultural figure in Norwegian music and culture and has a central place in the Norwegian national identity. Now, 100 years after his birth, he deserves a celebration! Given Prøysen’s large repertoire as a musician, writer and promoter of children and young people, we believe it is especially important to use its anniversary year to convey Prøysen’s repertoire to the younger generations.
