Unni Boksasp Ensemble arrives!

By Luke Rivard, Program Associate

The Unni Boksasp Ensemble from Norway has arrived! Well, most of the ensemble that is. Mia Marin, the fiddler in the group, was forced to depart a day later than planned due to visa problems. She’s here now and we are very relieved to have overcome the visa issues. The group flew into Chicago and made its way to Sterling, Illinois where they will have their first of four upcoming week-long residencies. More stories to follow!
