Charleston, Jussi Bjorling, conference
Had Jussi ever performed in Charleston, SC, that would most assuredly have been the local headline! Nearly fifty years after his death, a large contingent of JBS members descended upon this jewel of the South for a weekend conference that celebrated his life, legacy, and repertoire, as well as a strong Swedish connection to this port city dating back to the ante-bellum period and extending to the present day.
