Thank you from the bottom of my heart to all my wonderful colleagues involved. It's such a privilege to do this extraordinary performance with all of you! You are amazing!!

I will also give special thanks to director Joshua Sofaer for all your love and effort you put into this performance, and for handling all our personal output with sensitiveness!

    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

    Fantastisk Blogg du har. Vad kul att följa dig här. Lycka till framöver, kram

    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! :-) :-)

    Hej Hannah
    Ville bara säga Grattis till alla fantastiska framgångar.
    God jul önskar

    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
