The Nicholas Roerich Museum has been offering regular concerts and recitals for the last 70 years. They have always been—and continue to be—free to the public, financed by the Museum’s own budget and your donations. We have been able to keep organizing these concerts without either help from the city or any grants. Essential to our endeavors are the continued interest, care and participation of the musicians. Your donations are very important to us. We would like to thank everybody who decides to leave a contribution and so help keep the concert programs going.

Admission is free, but please register for the event to be admitted!

The poems of Olav H. Hauge, read in English translation and in the original Norwegian by Olav Grinde.
Olav Grinde will read from the new book: Luminous Spaces: Olav H. Hauge: Selected Poems & Journals translated by Olav Grinde (White Pine Press 2016).
Olav H. Hauge (1908-1994) lived nearly all of his life in his native Ulvik in Western Norway. A largely self-educated man, he earned his living as a farmer, orchardist, and gardener on a small plot. His poetry is now seen as one of the main achievements of twentieth-century Norwegian literature.
