Earlier this year, Aurora Music received Norway's Spellemann Award "International Success of the Year". The prize also receives a scholarship under the name "This is where it begun" of 100,000 kroner given by the Ministry of Culture. The prize winner must pass the scholarship on to a person, an organization or an environment that has helped to inspire and stimulate the person's interest in music. Aurora chose to give the scholarship to the Barony of Rosendal by Anne Grete Honerød and Reidar Nedrebø, and concertgoer and fan, Erik Hannisdal.
Manager Geir Luedy from Made Management received the scholarship on behalf of Aurora at the Music in the World conference last Friday, and it was Minister of Culture and Gender Equality Anette Trettebergstuen who handed it out.
Aurora chose to give the scholarship to the Barony of Rosendal by Anne Grete Honerød and Reidar Nedrebø, and concertgoer Erik Hannisdal.
The Barony in Rosendal is an important place in the lives of many artists. This is where Aurora finds peace and inspiration, and where she wrote the music for her latest album. The barony has art and culture as its driving force, and provides a unique place for artists. The scholarship will contribute to the Barony in Rosendal continuing to give the public new art and cultural experiences in magical surroundings.
Concertgoer Erik Hannisdal is a loyal fan of Aurora who has followed her since the beginning of her career.
This year's International Success is an award that highlights artists, songwriters and producers who have brought Norwegian music across national borders, promotes Norwegian success stories abroad, and stimulate an entire industry to invest internationally.
