Suzan Erens "Luncheon with Opera" in Norway

The Vefsn Ensemble Group With Suzan Erens in Norway

During the past week, I had the opportunity to visit with Suzan Erens and see/hear her sing at the Kulturverkstedet on Sjogata Street in the historic section of Mosjoen, Norway. This was advertised as a "Luncheon with Opera" or perhaps an "opera with your coffee".

Walking down Sjogata Street, I found my way into the Kulturverkstedet or Cultural Workshop. Once inside, I located a program "Operalugsj med Suzan Erens" and began reviewing the highlights. As I was early, I could hear Suzan still rehearsing and running checks, etc. in the next room.

I decided to go into the auditorium part and take a seat quietly while she was still busy with the Vefsn Ensemble group. But she saw me, waved and came over to give me a hug. Then, she bounced back to the stage to finish last minute items. I was glad that I came early because the place began to fill-up. It wasn't long before the Overture and Suzan began to sing the first selections from "Didos and Aeneas" by English Composer Henry Purcell ...

Thnak you Ed Martin for this update on Suzan. This story warmed my heart and I'm happy she is doing well and establishing herself in her new home. It was so nice to read this story and for you to make the trek to see her. Your pictures radiate such sweetness. Thanks Sue for posting the story and I wish Suzan much success.

Glad to hear Suzan is happy and doing so well. I remember a late interview when she stated that if Andre wanted her for a JSO concert, she was available. Maybe in the future.

Thanks, Ed, for this wonderful report on Suzan. So glad she's doing well and happy - who wouldn't be happy in that beautiful country!

Also, Jennifer loved your pic of the airplane and description of the approach into the airport...sounds a bit tricky.

Unfortunately, Suzanne had some problems loading all of my photos and the photos shown are not in the correct sequence with text.

Well Ed, nevertheless it was a nice article. These fan web sites are all time consuming voluntary work and Sue posts new articles daily to keep us updated. We thank her a lot for that!!!

Ed,

I've nver been to Norway but I certainly see what you meant about the wooden buildings reminding you of those small towns in the Rockies. The structures in the one picture reminded me of Silverton, CO. I used to ride those mountain passes on ATV. Glad you had a wonderful time.
