Jan-Olof Damberg, Jussi Bjorling Museum


Jan-Olof has been a considerable presence in our lives and in the life of the JB Museum for the last six years. Every Summer he has joined Harald in greeting visitors, responding to email, making presentations and managing the many administrative chores of a small museum. During the more financially flush years of the past, Jan-Olaf was often joined in the Summer by the extremely tall Roger Alderstrand ( discoverer of an enormous number of performances by the young Bjorling boys in the Swedish hinterlands), but at the end, it is Jan-Olof who is putting his DNA into the Museum. Every year has seen him grow in enthusiasm and expertise, and we have all come to admire his quiet competence and unfailing good humor.
