Report from the Edvard Grieg Society of America 2017
by IGS Vice President Sylvia Eckes
Sylvia Eckes
There are six Edvard Grieg societies in America, four of which have been formed since 2015:
the Edvard Grieg Society of America, based in Florida
the Edvard Grieg Society of the Great Lakes; based in Indiana
the Edvard Grieg Society of the Dakotas, based in North Dakota
the Northwest Edvard Grieg Society, based in Washington

The Societies are non-profit organizations and have already organized concerts, festivals, and established websites and Facebook pages. They were organized by performers who were inspired by the impact of the 2015 Grieg Festival in Florida and wanted to continue activities in their regions that included all-Grieg concerts, presentations, and competitions. The new societies are focusing on forming alliances with the two established societies, the Edvard Grieg Society of New York and the Edvard Grieg Society of Minnesota that will produce significant projects that bring Grieg to the public in many parts of the country.
