A year after the founding of the Jussi Bjorling Society - USA, opera lovers from all over the world gathered for discussions around the subject: Jussi Bjorling: His life, his music, his legacy. 'This will contribute to a lasting and solid cooperation between Sweden and USA", said Harald Henrysson, director of the Jussi Bjorling Museum in Borlange.
