conference. international conference, Sweden, JBS


The new year got off to a fast start for our three JBS chapters, all represented in Stockholm at the January Board meeting of the Scandinavian JB Sallskapet: Dan Shea represented the USA Society and stayed in close communication with Richard Copeman and Eric Wimbles of the JBAS, during his ten days in Sweden. The main question was how to proceed with plans for an international meeting-Kongress in September 2004, and all hands set to work at once under the leadership of Harald Henrysson. Harald already had made many preliminary inquiries, leading to quick and effective meetings with the Royal Opera, the Music Museum, the old Music Academy - the three most likely venues for our meetings.
