On March 11th, Hafnarborg received The Icelandic Music Award 2020 for The Music Event of the Year (Single Event), in the field of classic and contemporary music, for the opening concert of the exhibition Phonemes, which was a part of the programme of Dark Music Days.
Hafnarborg would like to thank percussionist Jennifer Torrence, for an unforgettable interpretation of the works of Tom Johnson and Bergrún Snæbjörnsdóttir, and curator Þráinn Hjálmarsson, for his exceptional work. We also thank all the artists who took part in the exhibition and participated in the event programme connected with it.
It is not every day that an art museum receives a music award, but music has been an important part of the Hafnarborg programme since the early years. This award is an incentive for us to continue on this path.
Thank you all!
