From Stockholm to Chicago:

An Immigrant’s Journey in Music

niceviolin.png

A first ever foray into Sweden for the BBE, this program begins in the heart of the motherland and features the court music of "Sweden's Handel" Johan Helmich Roman, Anders von Düben, and Sweden's folk music traditions.

The program culminates with a performance of Dr. Kurt Westerberg's Swedes in Chicago, a musical biography of his immigrant grandfather's journey from Sweden to Chicago where he eventually settled in the Andersonville and Edgewater neighborhoods.

Bring your Swedish fish and favorite IKEA stuffed animal and join us for an evening of great music!
