The feedback they have received since the opening in February 2000 has been formidable. Musicians and actors as well as audiences all express their pleasure at the exceptional acoustics and atmosphere in the hall. The sound system is praised as one of the best in the country, as is the grand piano. Just a few years ago, this was a rotten and holy room. Strong forces wanted the church torn down. Kirkelig Kulturverksted (KKV) has worked since 1986 to establish a scene for music, drama and pictorial art in Jakob’s Church. Today, the church appears as a unique stage with no parallel in Oslo. The only true cultural church in Norway!
The pictures from this evening are not of the best quality. They are taken in a church, from some distance and with low lighting with my Nokia mobile phone camera. But I hope they give you an idea of what a lovely atmosphere we enjoyed this evening!
Here is a video taken with my mobile phone Nokia 6680. Please be aware of the long distance and low lighting!
