Händel warmup this morning!❤ Happy December to you all!⭐️ #georgfriedrichhändel #baroquemusic #december1

In times of darkness it's important focusing on the light...
It's Always Darkest Before the Dawn (Thomas Fuller)

To honor the Light I arranged a Concert for Light this past Thursday at Bromma Folkhögskola. My student singers got to choose music for heart and soul and performing the music in their own personal way. The concert became a moment for the inner self and for all thoughts and feelings running through the body and mind.
Thank you all performing for your dedication to this project and concert!

The last week has been filled with various music and musical meetings! I'm feeling blessed to live my dream combining all these ways of expression; through my voice, through teaching and inspiring new talents and through entertainment!

This past Wednesday I had a great morning at Bromma Folkhögskola, first talking about self-confidence versus self-esteem with music students, then having vocal coaching with the theatre students.

The rest of the day I spent at Stockholm Waterfront, soundchecking and rehearsing for a gala event produced by Lundström Event. I was lucky spending my day with such great and fantastic musicians and dancers! Joakim Holgersson (piano and music producer), string quartet (Kerstin Thörn, Andreas Forsman, Anna Manell) and Hector Lopez (dancer and choreographer) with co-dancers.
Thank you Tommy Lundström, Suzanne Lundström and Helena Wallman at Lundström Event for a fabulous night!

Nicholas Daniel, Hannah Holgersson and Pascal Siffert backstage at Grünewaldsalen, Stockholms Konserthus.

This past Sunday I participated in the last concert of the Stockholm International Composer Festival dedicated to Thea Musgrave. It was an amazing and impressive chamber concert with Musgrave music from the 1950s undtil today.
I sang  A song for Christmas (to poems by William Dunbar) with brilliant pianist Stefan Lindgren. This song was composed during the late 1950s and is wonderfully built on twelve-tone technique.
Together with Nicholas Daniel (oboe d'amore) and Pascal Siffert (viola) I performed Snow to poems by Isaac Rosenberg. This piece was composed 2010 and the three melody lines are closely and beautifully entwined!

I want to give my warmest thanks to Norrköpings Symfoniorkester, to conductor Dalia Stasevska, to Stockholms Konserthus/Stockholm Concert Hall, to Stefan Lindgren, Pascal Siffert and Nicholas Daniel, and of course to Thea Musgrave for a wonderful production week during the Composer Festival 2018. It has been an honor!

    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
