A Nostalgic Trip Down Memory Lane

Hartvig Nissen klasseoktett 1984The year was 1984 and I was a music teacher at Hartvig Nissens Skole, one of the two high schools in Oslo to offer a full music line. Besides teaching music history, harmony, music theory, and conducting the school choir, we had a class choir in my class, plus some of the girls formed a harmony octet. Norwegian TV made a feature for the program Musikknytt, and here is the result.

Hartvig Nissen PO 1984

As you can all plainly see, we were younger 30 years ago, and the TV esthetics were also different then – quite a bit slower than today. But as long as I am not too embarassed to see and hear myself, I can still stand watching it 31 years after and know that others will, too.

You can see the program on NRK’s web player here.

  1. Per Ole, thanks for sharing. It appears to have been an excellent program. I assume you still have those eyeglasses from 30 years ago as back ups. Take care and hope you and family are well.
