Welcome back to Gunilla’s homepage this new year 2012. She is currently working on two new exciting projects that you will get to know about some time during this spring. She has also started a blog about her professional life as a musician and teacher. See the blog (only in Swedish) at - gunillatorn.wordpress.com
This Sunday the 30th, Gunilla and her band goes to Vara Concert Hall to perform their tribute to Joni Mitchell. The audience will hear both big hits like Big Yellow Taxi and Both Sides Now, as well as perhaps lesser known but not less fantastic songs by Joni. Stockholm Strings is included in the ten member band and play arrangements written by Gunilla. Please visit these links for more information about the concert and Vara Concert Hall.
Last Saturday, January 22nd, Gunilla was also a guest soloist at the gigantic farewell concert Bosse Grand Final! performed with and in honour of Bo Johansson, who retires as the conductor for Adolf Fredrik’s Girlschoir. As a former member of the choir in 1992-1995, Gunilla was invited together with eight other now professional vocalists in different genres, to each perform a song of their own choice. The night was an acceptionally memorable one with not only the soloist but of course the gigantic choir of 300 girls/women, all former members of the choir, and the now working Adolf Fredrik’s Girlschoir. The Swedish Radio SRP2 recorded and the whole concert will be aired on the 12th of February in P2 Live Klassiskt at 15.00 (CET).
This summer Gunilla had the honour and pleasure to recieve a scholarship from the Swedish Arts Grants Committe! New music has been created and part of it was performed at the much appreciated concerts at Glenn Miller Café in August. A new chance to hear both music from the album A Time For Everything and part of the new material comes with a concert in October 13th when she will be playing with her full band including her string quartet at the Teaterstudio Lederman. The concert starts at 20.00 and costs 140SEK for adults and 80SEK for youth/students. Book your tickets by calling +46-8-303094 or send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org
