Description

Northern Resonance is the Scandinavian string trio that takes newly composed folk music into enormous soundscapes. With their previously untested combination of instruments; viola d’amore, hardanger fiddle and nyckelharpa they let Scandinavian music meet explosive rhythms and grand chamber-like arrangements that takes folk music in a new direction.

All members are highly skilled and accomplished musicians, rooted in traditional music. With an intense musical connection that is rare to come across, they invite you into their world of compositions. There is great life in their tunes, and the trio knows how to bring it out.

With their debut album that was released in the autumn of 2020, Northern Resonance have already established themselves with a glorious sound and has impressed a broad audience worldwide. The album was nominated for a Swedish Grammy and the trio will release their second album in 2024. 

“With their close interplay, the trio moves effortlessly outside the soundscape of the tradition but moves just as easily within it. The instrument’s many resonance strings become the trio's musical bloodstream that is effervescent with both detail and boundlessness. It pulsates with the feeling of home as well as a desire to discover new land.” — Lira Music Magazine

WELCOME TO COWRA CIVIC CENTRE

The Cowra Civic Centre regularly hosts live performances, cinema screenings, civic events, balls and seminars. The centre has two spaces - the main auditorium seating 335 people and the theatrette seating up to 80 people. 

Located on Wiradjuri Country in Central West NSW, the Cowra Civic Centre was officially open December 5, 1969. The first performance took place on 18 March, 1970 - a production of Sweeney Todd, a play performed by the Cowra Musical & Dramatic Society as part of the Festival of Lachlan Valley (now known as the Festival of International Understanding). 

Since then the venue has gone on to host live performances, civic events, film screenings, balls and even a wrestling match.
