Event Description
Ólafur Arnalds

Icelandic composer and multi-instrumentalist Ólafur Arnalds has steadily built a reputation as one of the world’s most bright and able young composers. Purveying a neo-classical style with an array of influences which range from electronica to minimalism, he is an artist who draws from a variety of sources whilst maintaining his own unique sound.

Since the release of his 2007 debut, "Eulogy for Evolution", Arnalds has put his name to a variety of projects which include scores for choreographed dance, television, and film, as well as a featured track in the film “The Hunger Games”. His most recent release, "For Now I Am Winter", spent two weeks at #1 on the Billboard Classical Traditional Chart. The stunning new record is a categorical side-step away from the sound he is best known for, recorded with a full orchestra (with arrangements by Nico Muhly) and – for the first time – vocals.

The accompanying small-scale live shows have taken him across Europe, North America and Asia, and are where the intimacy of Arnalds’ performance and personality shine through. This performance features support by rising Danish electro-pop performer Lisa Alma.

***Join us at 7PM for early seating and drinks, and to experience a new choreographed work from the Cincinnati Ballet's Heather Britt, performed by dancers from Northern Kentucky University to music by Ólafur Arnalds. Not to be missed!
