The Edvard Grieg Society of the Dakotas presents "Northern Lights: Celebrating Grieg, Vinje and Kjerulf" November 8-9 at Northern State University in Aberdeen.

Dr. Marla Fogderud of NSU is one of the many performers. She's also presenting a lecture session and poetry reading.

The festival commemorates the 175th jubilee of Norwegian composer Edvard Grieg, the 200th jubilee of Norwegian poet Aasmund O. Vinje, and the 150th anniversary of the death of Halfdan Kjerulf, who is regarded as the "father of Norwegian art song."
