JPR and the Oregon Center for the Arts at Southern Oregon University present Väsen in concert Wednesday night, April 19th at the SOU Music Recital Hall in Ashland at 8pm.
Väsen (pronounced VESS-en) was described once as “the best band in the world,” and that may not be too much of a stretch. Every performance by the Swedish trio - Olov Johansson, nyckelharpa, Mikael Marin, 5-string viola, and Roger Tollroth, guitar - is infused with such vibrancy and vitality that audiences have no choice but to beam with enthusiasm. There’s a level of synchronization between the guys so precise it’s like they perform as one. If you want a special musical memory that will last, do not miss this show!
Tickets are $26 General Admission / $10 SOU Student with valid student ID. Tickets are available online by CLICKING HERE, or at the Box Office: 541-552-6348.
