It was an honor yesterday to be a part of the Memorial Concert in Uppenbarelsekyrkan, Saltsjöbaden. Music for All Saints' Day gathered a full seated church and all the candle lights reminded us of life and death, but above all; of Love.

As the soloist I started the concert with the heavenly music by Henry Purcell; An Evening Hymn. Fantastic musician Mathias Kjellgren played the organ. Later on in the concert I was performing the beautiful melody lines in Hear my prayer by Felix Mendelssohn, as well as in Requiem by John Rutter.

Perforing were:
Hannah Holgersson, soprano soloist
Mathias Kjellgren, organ
Katja Själander, conductor
Members of the Stockholm Concert Orchestra
Saltsjöbadens Kyrkokör

Thank you all for creating musical magic on this memorial moment!
