July 30, 2022 – 19:00

Evangelical Church Nieder-Moos

According to the press release, the second summer concert of this concert in the summer at the large Nieder-Moos Evangelical Church in Vogelsberg, next Saturday, July 30, 2022 at 19:00, will be a cultural sensation from Norway / Scandinavia.

Ten brass musicians from the band “tenThing” arrive. It is probably the most important brass band in the world. All concert halls are at your feet. And now, after guest performances in 2014 and 2017, the regulars of Nieder-Mooser concerts have a chance to get to know this world-famous women’s band again and listen to them at a concert. The band is led by the star trumpeter Tine Thing Helseth, who is only 35 years old herself. She is considered the best solo trumpet player of her generation in the world.

Tin Thing Helseth

Born in Oslo in 1987, Tine Thing Helseth studied at the Oslo Music Institute and is today one of the leading soloists of her generation on the trumpet. She has performed at renowned European festivals such as the Schleswig-Holstein Music Festival, Kissinger Sommer and RheingauMusik Festival, and has received numerous awards, including “Newcomer of the Year” at the Norwegian Grammy Awards. In recent years, she has performed as a guest with many well-known symphony orchestras and has performed several times with soloists from Trondheim, incl. across Great Britain, Switzerland and Germany. In 2008, her debut CD with concertos for trumpet by Haydn, Albinoni, Neruda and Hummel was released. A year later, the album “My Heart is Always Present” with Christmas music was released. She has been an exclusive artist at EMI Classics since 2011. Young Norwegian Tine Thing Helseth quickly secured a place among the best trumpet players in the short span of her international career. She played at the Nobel Peace Prize for Al Gore and delighted everyone with her virtuosity and fresh, moving interpretations.

TenThing, brass band

Both also apply to her band tenThing, with whom she made a dream come true: ten Scandinavian musicians who, under the direction of Tine Thing Helseth, arrange brass music and rediscover it full of creativity.

Ten brass musicians united in one band – it sounds like a lot of fun and strength of a girl. TenThing was founded in 2007 and has been giving concerts in Norway and abroad ever since. In tenThing, everyone contributes to the team’s success – be it through outstanding performance or good ideas. The overall picture is virtuoso, diverse, and yet self-sufficient. The repertoire includes both classics of wind literature and arrangements of contemporary orchestral music.

The program of the evening includes arrangements of classical pieces by Handel, Grieg, Copland, Scandinavian folk songs, as well as jazz and pop pieces. All arrangements are by Norwegian composer Jarle Storlokken.

The concert is the highlight of the extensive summer concert calendar and is sponsored by the Hessian Ministry of Science and Art, supported by the Sparkassen Kulturstiftung Hessen-Thüringen and is also a program highlight of the Kultursommer Mittelhessen.
