St Matthew Passion in sunny Springtime

Fantastic Carl Unander-Scharin this Wednesday, after replacing our tenor Conny Thimander who got sick! Fantastic Carl Unander-Scharin this Wednesday, after replacing our tenor Conny Thimander who got sick!

This second week of the production St Matthew Passion started off with the month of April. A bit cold in the beginning but today the sun is shining and all people and nature are blooming!! Wonderful!!

Before doing performance number 5 and 6 at Folkoperan I started the week with some vocal teaching at Betel Folkhögskola. The Eric Ericson Chamber Choir was also rehearsing, preparing our coming tour to Barcelona in May, with music by Ligeti, Brahms, Schönberg, Edlund and Poulenc!

The positive feedback of St Matthew passion has been amazing! People are genuinely moved by this powerful performance and I am so proud and grateful for being a part! Attached to this blog you'll find a review from the newspaper Tidningen Dagen, published yesterday by Inger Alestig.

Most welcome to Folkoperan this weekend! Tomorrow Saturday at 19:00 and Sunday at 16:00!
