Hannah Holgersson at Löddeköpinge kyrka Hannah Holgersson at Löddeköpinge kyrka

Finally I'm heading back home to Stockholm. I have experienced great and intense days with wonderful musicians and today I did my final stop on this last tour. I performed this afternoon during a private event in Löddeköpinge Church in Skåne County with a program of mixed genres from Edvard Grieg to Sarah Dawn Finer!

I must admit that I'm a bit tired. Not only because of the early flight from Bergen this morning, but also because of all musical input and output these past weeks. I'm looking forward to a couple of days of resting my voice, but after that I will dive joyously into music by Vivaldi and Purcell! =)

Hannah Holgersson with a great Bergen view! Hannah Holgersson with a great Bergen view!

What a success! The Norwegian Soloists' Choir and the Mahler Chamber Orchestra were a perfect match and performed the Choral Fantasy by Beethoven and Friede auf Erden by Schönberg beautifully and with an extraordinary brilliance! Special thanks to amazing pianist and conductor Leif Ove Andsnes as well as to wonderful conductor Grete Pedersen!

I'm very pleased with my first visit to the Bergen International Festival as well as with my first performance with the Norwegian Soloists' Choir! Let's hope we meet again...!

They say that it's always raining in Bergen....but I must say that I have been lucky... It rained when we arrived yesterday, but since then it has been almost blue sky and sunshine...! As my visit ends I am now listening to beautiful raindrops outside my open window as I pack my bags for a very early flight to Copenhagen tomorrow morning. A private event is waiting for me in the south part of Sweden. Let's get some sleep....!

Hannah Holgersson at Bergen by sunset! Hannah Holgersson at Bergen by sunset!

Together with Det Norske Solistkor and Grete Pedersen, I arrived in Bergen today after a morning flight from Oslo. Such a beautiful place!!! During the rehearsal at Griegakademiet the rain stopped and we got a wonderful pre-summer's evening! I took the chance to see and experience Grieghallen (our concert venue tomorrow night) when attending the opera performance "Voices and Votes". Looking forward to sing in this amazing hall as a part of the Bergen International Festival.

Hannah Holgersson on her way to Oslo Hannah Holgersson on her way to Oslo

This morning I took off to Oslo, Norway, to meet Det Norske Solistkor (the Norwegian Soloists' Choir) for the first time. It was a pleasure singing with their conductor Grete Pedersen again. I worked with her a couple of years ago in Stockholm during a production with the Eric Ericson Chamber Choir. This time I will be a part of the Det Norske Solistkor as they go on tour to Bergen and the Bergen International Festival.

Great pieces of music started off this week;
Brahms; Fest und Gedenksprüche
Ligeti; Lux aeterna

The Eric Ericson Chamber Choir, with conductor Fredrik Malmberg, performed this magnificent program in Immanuelskyrkan, Stockholm, last Monday. The audience was thrilled and responded with a standing ovation!

Hannah Holgersson at the Chalmers' banquet Hannah Holgersson at the Chalmers' banquet

I'm on my way back to Stockholm after a great and intense day in Gothenburg. Yesterday I had the honor being, together with amazing Peter Johansson, the guest artist of the Doctoral Conferment of Chalmers. We started off in the sunny afternoon with the main ceremony at the Gothenburg Concert Hall. I did music by Edvard Grieg as well as the magnificent duet Barcelona (Queen) together with Peter. Later on during the following banquet at Chalmers we performed a various program of music; musical, rock, folk music, jazz and classical music. Eminent pianist of the evening was Sebastian Robertsson!
