DATES at 2012 Bergen Educational Conversation
It was a pleasure to sing a short concert today for an annual symposium of educational researchers in Norway, the Bergen Educational Conversation. This year, the symposium featured Professor Gert Biesta.
Our performance was with an a cappella quartet that now goes by the name “dates” derived from the first letters of its members’ names: David, Anne, Tine and Silje. The “E” of DATES is occasionally represented as well when we appear as a quintet, for which we add Egil Haugland (tenor), who is mostly known as an outstanding classical guitarist and guitar builder. Anyway, I sing the bass part, with Anne Kristine Wallace Turøy (alto), and Tine Grieg Viig (contralto), and Silje Valde Onsrud (soprano). Tine is now my doctoral student at Bergen University College, and we performed some of her fine compositions and arrangements.
