Hjertelig velkommen til denne showcasekonserten med selveste Aksel Kolstad. Kombinert med tradisjonell klassisk musikk (master i piano fra Norges Musikkhøgskole) og mye humor (ofte kalt for "Den nye Victor Borge"), vil han dele denne lørdags ettermiddagen sammen med oss.
Gled dere til å høre "vår tids Franz Liszt" live i Sjømannskirken i New York.
