The annual Christmas Concert of the Hallgrímskirkja Motet Choir will be a festive affair as usual. The title of the Concert this year is „O magnum mysterium“ or „The great wonder“.

He has received numerous awards, for example he has twice won the Icelandic Music Award for Best classical singer – including last year for his performance in Don Giovanni. He has performed numerous times with the Motet Choir in Hallgrímskirkja, including this summer during the performance of J. S. Bach‘s Mass in B-minor. Björn Steinar Sólbergsson plays the organ.
