Knut Glomsaas

Knut Markus Hansen Glomsaas (1863-1935) was a Norwegian military musician based in Trondheim. Although he decided to go to America as a 17-year-old man, his father saw his talents and made him join the military as a cornetist in the artillery instead.[1] He studied in Berlin for two years. He was known for his competence, and led and instructed multiple choirs. He wrote music for ballet, marches and military music, dance music,[1][2] and he wrote a polka for Trondheim's 900-years jubilee.

The street Knut Glomsaas vei in Trondheim is named after him.
