Today is the 6th of June, the Swedish national day.

I honor my beautiful Swedish country by singing the national anthem; Du gamla, du fria.

Lyrics: Richard Dybeck, 1844
Music: Swedish traditional folk melody from Västmanland

As a part of the Sunday Greetings in May, from Adolf Fredrik Church (Adolf Fredriks kyrka), Stockholm, I performed Herren är min herde by Swedish composer Gunnar de Frumerie.

The lyrics from Psalm 23, The Lord is my Shepherd, are reminding us to rely on God, in every part of life.

I hade the great honor performing the song with brilliant Per-Ove Larsson (organ).

The month of April has offered new inspiring collaborations! About a year ago I met photographer Maja Brand during an event, and a couple of weeks ago we got together again for a photo shoot at beautiful Hesselby slott (Hesselby Castle). Maja knows how to use natural environment, light and angles and she makes you feel relaxed in front of the camera!

A week ago I also got to do a lovely music collaboration with my colleague at Bromma Folkhögskola. Martin Åsander is a brilliant composer and I had the honor interpreting his song "Landet som icke är" (lyrics by Edith Södergran) during a digital performance. Martin played the piano part. Please enjoy a glimpse of the song here below.

During these special times of Covid-19 and of isolation and distancing, it feels wonderful to be able to share music, love and hope through digital media.

This Easter week it has been a great honor to contribute with my voice in sacred music for Easter Sunday, as well as for funural service.

Yesterday, during Easter Sunday, I performed some joyful music by J S Bach, Gabriel Fauré and W A Mozart in Boo kyrka, Nacka, together with Gundega Novotny (piano/organ) and Börje Westerlund (trumpet). This Easter Prayer was broadcasted live.

Earlier this week I recorded the soulful Easter message "I know that my Redeemer liveth" from Messiah by G F Händel. This recording was made with Mattias Wager (organ) and Maria Lindal (violin) in Storkyrkan, Stockholm. The song was a part of Easter Sunday Prayer in Storkyrkan and can be watched here:

I am sad to tell you that all my concerts with Marinens Musikkår (the Royal Swedish Navy Band), conductor Alexander Hanson and with host Lars Hjertner are cancelled this week, due to coronavirus…
We hope though to do music together soon again…
Until then I wish, hope and pray for health and recovery!

This past Sunday I had the honor singing with Hässelby Kammarkör and conductor Karin Krigsman Järnskoog in Hässelby Villastads kyrka, Stockholm. Together with excellent instrumentalists Paul Höglander, Cecilia Olsson and Jörgen Lindström we created a colourful concert with world music, folk music and Missa Nova Sofiae by contemporary composer Nina Åkerblom Nielsen.

Tomorrow I will meet Marinens Musikkår (The Royal Swedish Navy Band) again! We have made many wonderful concerts together through the years and this time we will go on a short tour with music connected to the journey at sea made by Horatio Hornblower (from the story by C. S. Forester). Alexander Hanson is conductor and the concert host is Lars Hjertner.

Here below some concert memories with Bromma Folkhögskola, where I teach singing, from the beginning of this year!
