Cancelled: Young Swedish Soloist – Jazz
Jazz musician Anna Gréta Sigurdardóttir – ‘Ung Svensk Solist’ (Young Swedish Soloist) and recipient of the Monica Zetterlund scholarship – will perform in the Hall of State at Gripsholm Castle.
In accordance with the Public Health Agency of Sweden’s recommendations and the Government’s directives several of this spring’s programme events will be postponed or cancelled. Those who have already purchased tickets for these events will be contacted.
Jazz pianist and composer Anna Gréta Sigurdardóttir moved to Sweden just three years ago, but has already become a sought-after artist on the Swedish jazz scene. Despite her young age, she has already played with many of the Swedish jazz elite.
Anna Gréta was awarded the 2019 Monica Zetterlund scholarship and this year was named ‘Ung Svensk Solist’ (Young Swedish Soloist) by Scenkonst Sörmland, among many other accolades.
Joining her on stage for this summer concert will be two eminent fellow musicians – drummer Robert Mehmet Ikiz, who is one of Sweden’s most in-demand jazz musicians, and sought-after bassist, and 2018 recipient of the Monica Zetterlund scholarship, Arvid Jullander.
