Hannah Holgersson singing during event in Stockholm.

Last night I had the honor performing during an event in Stockholm. The songs of the evening had a movie theme and were chosen from the films Cinema Paradiso and The Greatest Showman.
Performing with me on stage were these fabulous musicians; Joakim Holgersson, Kerstin Thörn, Thomas Ringqvist, Adina Sabin and Kristian Brink.

Hannah Holgersson singing film music and songs from the musical theatre at Sundbybergs kyrka.

About a week ago I was a part of a film music concert in Sundbybergs kyrka. I sung some of the greatest songs from the film and the musical theatre and enjoyed the company of choirs and orchestra, the brilliant Heidi Rohlin Westin (recorder) and conductor and producer Fredrik Ewaldsson.

Many thanks to a wonderful audience and to all co-musicians:

Last week my student singers performed a drama concert at Bromma Folkhögskola, called "Where are we going?". During several weeks the students have been improvising on the theme of the title; "What people do you meet at a Central Station?", "What conversations do you overhear?", "Are you stressed out on your way to the train, or do have time for a nice cup of coffee before departure?", etc. All these improvised scenes were in the end put together in an order and interleaved with songs and music.
I am so impressed by my students for a powerful and convincing singing and acting, and proud to be the producer of a different and entertaining concert!
Thank you all involved in this project!!

What a week! So much love during concerts arranged to honor Valentine's day and to honor love for a fellow human being, the love for nature and the love to God and eternal love.

Last Sunday I participated in the premier of the concert Song of Songs (Sångernas sång) in Falkenbergs kyrka. I had the honor doing the music piece Nattens Längtan, by composer Kjell Perder (to lyrics by Bo Setterlind) that was written for my final music examination at the Stockholm Royal College of Music. The music is composed as a duet for voice and cello. Anna Stina Mühlhäuser played brilliantly in Falkenberg as well as in Årsta kyrka!
The concert production Song of Songs was also performed in Årsta kyrka, Stockholm, later this week. The piece Hög Visa by Kjell Perder (with lyrics from the Song of Songs) was part of the program and composed for two female voices and strings. It was a great pleasure performing with soprano Tove Dahlberg and Ensemble Musica di Costiera, all conducted by Kjell Perder himself.

In addition to the concerts Song of Songs, I have had two concerts (a lunch concert in Immanuelskyrkan, Stockholm and en evening concert in Grindtorpskyrkan, Täby) with my music students from Bromma Folkhögskola. Together with pianist and teacher Göran Nygren we have performed a mixed concert program with music and lyrics on the Love theme, in which I have contributed with music by Edvard Grieg, Gunnar de Frumerie, Ennio Morricone, Roger Quilter, Franz Lehár, Frederick Loewe and Leonard Bernstein.

A warm and big thank you to all musicians and people involved in the concerts this passed week. You are amazing and fantastic! Love greetings to you all!

A sparkling new year concert at Bromma Folkhögskola this week! With music by G F Händel, W A Mozart, Franz Lehár, Astor Piazzolla, Joseph Haydn among others, we celebrated 2019 with a joyful audience! The concert started with snacks and beverages and ended with a spontaneous and cheerful waltz. I am, as a teacher and producer, very proud to see and hear the result of practice and prepartions by the students of the Classical Music Education at Bromma Folkhögskola!

Hannah Holgersson at Falkenbergs kyrka.

Today we met for the first rehearsal of the upcoming Song of Songs concerts. All music is composed to lyrics from the Song of Songs. Main composers are Kjell Perder and Maria Löfberg.
It was lovely meeting and singing with soprano colleague Tove Dahlberg again! We did Hög Visa by Kjell Perder for the first time in 2012. The second piece I will perform is Nattens Längtan by Kjell Perder. This piece was written for me and Andreas Tengberg (cello) in 2004. This time I will sing the amazing music with fantastic cellist Anna-Stina Mühlhäuser.

    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
