There will be 16 Skolekorps (bands) from all over Oslo attending this event. All the bands will be marching in the parade together with the PULSE team from Akershus Festning to Slottsplassen in Oslo. PULSE has worked together with Ante Skaug and Nicklas Oghren to find an energetic and fun repertoire for the parade, they are really looking forward for this event. The repertoire consists of the brand new song “100 år (100 years) Celebration” arranged by Nicklas Oghren and the traditional South African Song “Makarita” arranged by Sihle Mabena.
PULSE is proud to announce that the Prime Minister of Norway, Erna Solberg will be attending and also opening the event.
