  • Björk to broadcast four orchestral concerts from Reykjavik image
  • Björk will broadcast four orchestral concerts in the coming weeks, live from the Harpa Concert Hall in Reykjavik. The fully acoustic shows will take place on October 11th, 24th and 31st and November 15th. Each of the concerts will see Björk performing with different ensembles, including the Icelandic Symphony Orchestra, the Viibra flute septet and the Hamrahlíð Choir. "Dear friends," says a note from Björk, "I would like to invite you to some concerts to honour folks who got hit hardest in the coronavirus, and the Black Lives Matter movement, and to honour how many Icelandic musicians I have worked with through the years." Björk also adds: "My input into the feminist fight is to brag about that almost all of those arrangements are by me. Unfortunately, this is something that is almost always ignored when women are arrangers." Each concert will raise money for Kvennaathvarf Women's Shelter.
