Gardar Cortes in Christmas Concert

One of Iceland’s most beloved tenors, Gardar Cortes, will perform in two concerts, singing international Christmas carols accompanied by Swedish pianist Robert Sund, at Reykjavík Art Museum – Kjarvalsstadir on December 2 and 3.

Cortes and Sund first performed at a Christmas concert in cooperation with the Reykjavík Art Museum last year. The concert proved so successful that it has now become an annual event.

Cortes and Sund have worked together since 1980 and have released three joint albums.

At Kjarvalsstadir they will perform their greatest hits with emphasis on Icelandic and international Christmas songs, including “Mary’s Boy Child,” “Bella Notte” and “Ó, Helga nótt.”

Tickets cost ISK 1,000 (USD 8.14, EUR 5.40) and are sold at the entrance. Both concerts begin at 12:15. Admission is free for senior citizens and students.
