SING ALONG FOR BIG AND SMALL 2021

Sing along for big and small! Join in well-known, much loved children’s songs together with Sollentuna Musikklasser led by singalong host and music arranger Johan Pejler. We sing about kind bears in the woods, hungry sharks in the sea and sweet cats on a farm as well as woolly lambs and climbing mice.

Sollentuna Musikklasser is a 7-15 compulsory school with a special focus on music where each class forms its own choir. The school’s curriculum is based on a national choir tradition that includes a sacred as well as a profane repertoire. The school offers a wide selection of musical genres. The students give concerts in the school’s assembly hall, at large and small venues in and around Stockholm and in churches in and around Sollentuna. While the music syllabus focuses primarily on choir-singing, the students also study the theory and history of music. The aim is to develop young people’s voices, offer them a solid background in music and an open their minds to different types of music.

Bengt Rosengren är solooboist i Sveriges Radios Symfoniorkester sedan 1983. Han har återkommande framträtt som solist med orkestern, bland annat i Richard Strauss, Wolfgang Amadeus Mozarts samt Bohuslav Martinůs respektive oboekonserter, liksom i Esa-Pekka Salonens Mimo II. Han tjänstgjorde som solooboist i Stockholms Nya Kammarorkester till dess orkestern upphörde 2019. Även med dem uppträdde han som solist flera gånger, bland annat med Arne Nordheims oboekonsert Boomerang i New York, samt under flera av Stockholms Konserthus tonsättarfestivaler, där han bland annat spelat Witold Lutosławskis Dubbelkonsert för oboe och harpa i närvaro av tonsättaren. Lutosławskis dubbelkonsert spelade han även i Berwaldhallen 2021 tillsammans med Lisa Viguier Vallgårda under ledning av Daniel Harding.

Han är en flitig kammarmusiker, medlem i blåskvintetten Amadé och finns representerad i ett stort antal skiv- och radioinspelningar både som solist och som kammarmusiker. 2009 blev Rosengren inbjuden att vara solooboist i World Orchestra for Peace, en orkester bestående av världens främsta orkestermusiker under ledning av Valery Gergiev. Han är lektor och huvudlärare i oboe på Kungliga Musikhögskolan i Stockholm, där han även undervisar i kammarmusik och orkesterspel.

Since 1999, Johanna Sjunnesson has been a cellist with the Swedish Radio Symphony Orchestra, and she also comfortably ventures beyond the boundaries of orchestral music. As a soloist, she has performed at Berwaldhallen, the Concert Hall, Cirkus, and the Blue Hall, as well as at the Grammis Gala and the Polar Music Prize Banquet, where she has performed her own compositions.

In her own compositions, Johanna is inspired by various genres, from baroque and classical music to ambient and electronica. Her music has been played on both radio and television, and in the fall of 2023, an album featuring music for solo cello and another in ambient style, recorded with Iceland-based Mikael Lind, will be released. Lind also participated in the EP ”Celistial” released in 2021, where Johanna interprets music by Marin Marais, Henry Purcell, and Johann Sebastian Bach, among others.

Johanna Sjunnesson studied at the Royal College of Music with Elemér Lavotha, as well as abroad through several major scholarships.
