Jussi Björling Museum
The Museum’s official opening day was Oct. 22, 1994. The 25-year celebration will take place on October 26 with a gala concert in the Mission Church across the courtyard from the Museum. Music journalist Göran Forsling will assist Curator Jan-Olof Damberg by acting as Master of Ceremonies. Founding Curator Harald Henrysson will speak briefly about the history of the Museum, and about his new book. Local soprano Hanna Husáhr will be the featured artist. Hanna currently sings in the Royal Opera company and has sung in many companies throughout Europe. She received the 2011 Jussi Björlingstipendiet (JB Award of the Royal Opera Soloists Foundation). Hanna will be joined on stage by 2019 Sällskapet prize winner tenor Per Lindström. Per was also heard both in Voxna and Strömsbruk this summer.
