Vegar Guleng

Vegar Guleng started taking piano lessons at the age of six, and was challenged to compose early on. In his early 20s he studied composition with Wolfgang Plagge, as well as at the University of Oslo. He continued his studies in Trondheim and graduated in 2018 with a Masters in composition with Ståle Kleiberg as his professor. Vegar has attended the international summer school Musica Soundmine in Belgium, lead by the composer Wim Henderickx. This culminated in the creation of two pieces: Nights awake premiered by Antwerpen Symphony Orchestra in 2019, and Crossing the Event Horizon premiered by HERMESensemble.
