New Board Members
Join Hemsing Festival!
The Hemsing Festival is very excited to welcome Olemic Thommessen as the new chairman of the board, and Mirella Bodini as a new board member!
Mirella is a communications specialist with Forsvarsbygg, and Olemic is the former president of the Stortinget, and is now the main representative for the Høyre party in the Local Government and Public Administration Committee.
We also want to extend our warm and heartfelt appreciation for the invaluable contributions that Frode Sannum, our outgoing chairman of the board, and Per Boye Hansen, a board member, have made during their respective tenures. And we’re so grateful that Frode will help the transition go smoothly by remaining on the board for the coming year.
Eldbjørg is also stepping out from her seat on the board, but will continue as an artistic director for the festival along with Ragnhild.
The Hemsing Festival has a goal of becoming an International recognized chamber music festival, which creates “intimate encounters with great music.” We’re looking forward to working together along with the board to realize this vision!
The new board, from June 2019, will be as follows:
Olemic Thommessen, styreleder
Frode Sannum, medlem
Anniken Thue, medlem
Berit L. Henriksen, medlem
Mirella Bodini, medlem
Ragnhild Hemsing, medlem
