Hannah Holgersson, Stefan Lindgren and Thea Musgrave

Today I got to meet wonderful Thea Musgrave for the first time! I had a great moment with her and her husband Peter Mark going through some of the music for the upcoming concerts this week. I am performing at the Composer Festival at the Stockholm Concert Hall, and the spotlight is on Thea Musgrave and her amazing music.
Pianist Stefan Lindgren and I will do one of the songs for the Sunday concert; A Song for Christmas!

I have really enjoyed these last days singing amazing jazz music from the 1960s! I got the chance to sing once more the beautiful piece Ljus tungt som bly by Jan Johansson (lyrics by Elisabet Hermodsson). The last time was during Östersjöfestivalen in August. During these new concerts with Radiojazzgruppen I also performed the piece Intermittent meditation över Dr Martin Luther King Jr by Georg Riedel.
Last night we did the final Jan Johansson Tribute concert at Uppsala Konsert & Kongress. Thank you all involved in this project! Thanks to all wonderful co-musicians, and special greetings to Georg Riedel (conductor and producer) and Lennart Åberg (producer).

    Inte bara fantastiskt professionell i ditt artisteri, utan även i din lärarroll! Tack för ett fantastiskt år med dig där jag fått utvecklat rösten som instrument, modet och min musikalitet. Jag kommer bära med mig det och kunna använda det varje dag.
    Eloge till en underbar sångerska, men också lärare. Kommer sakna våra lektioner! Kramar Julia

    Hannah - Even though I am fairly well versed in all sorts of classical music, I have never heard of you (or Anders Hillborg) before, I'm sorry, but heard you singing O dessa ögon this morning on BBC Radio 3 (with Sakari Oramo) and was absolutely transfixed. An amazing composition by Hillborg, but an even more amazing voice of yours, with - especially towards the end - those near-, below- and beyond- octave leaps sung with absolute security, sharpness and clarity, and with a wonderful interplay of absence and presence of vibrato. What a beautiful, transcendent sound! Thank you so much! :-) :-)

    Hejsan Hannah,

    Vill gärna tacka för gårdagens uppvisning i Matteuskyrkan. Det var en upplevelse att få vara med om detta och något av det vackraste jag har hört.
    Fantastiskt samspel mellan dig och orkestern, och jag satt som tur var bra till precis framför dig och kunde också SE dig sjunga. Så vackert! Tack för den gåshuden!
    Lev väl,
    Anders
