This years fireworks concert i Dalhalla was really exciting. I'm happy to be a part of the production team, besides my normal duties as arranger. The concert and the concept is really great. Moving from pop song with Magnus Carlsson and Titiyo - to new contemporary music, with composers such as Tobias Broström and Einojuhani Rautavaara. Everything masterly put together by conductor Jonas Nydesjö and played by DalaSinfoniettan. 
I really hope that the idee of combining music from different genres will happen more often in the orchestral world in the future.  Cause, IT REALLY WORKS!

I had a great time playing with Rigmor Gustafsson and Bohuslän Big Band last weekend in Trakai, Latvia. Wow, that venue was really beautiful! Playing a nice program in front of a packed crowd, watching the sun going down over the lake was amazing.
