Singing in the Rain

ParaplyBorlänge Music Theatre

Tonight I looked at Borlänge Music Theatre production of Singing in the Rain. The main character Don Lockwood is played by Emil Bewö, that makes astonishing performance. The female stars Cecilia Bos and Isabelle Kågstöm lift this musical to a higher level. The best I have seen Borlänge Music Theatre do so far.

Voice

hagstromGospel according to Elvis

One month ago I started singing in an unreligious gospel choir, in form of evening classes. Petra Kvännå known from “Körslaget”/Choir Battle give 70 enthusiastic people singing lessons. After one class she told us that we are going on a tour. Expect the unexpected! I just wanted to control my voice better. We have three concerts booked: Children of the World, Långshyttan; Winter Consert, Sollerö Church and the Gospel according to Elvis, Rättvik Church. Petra thinks that singing is health and joy. I agree with her. The last consert is for collecting money for the Hagström guitars.

Hip museum

Ljuskrona”Dalarna museum/Dalecarlia museum”

The museum has become rather hip and cool place. Now they are showing “Graffiti”.

You can also watch “Dalahästar”/Dalecarlia Horses with two ears, like they should look. In the restaurant ”Koppar hatten”/The Copper Hat there is an exhibition with the cool and talented photographer Ryan Garrisson. They are collecting money for Rock N Roll Guitars of the trademark Hagström to build a permanent exhibition.

Snow

Cold

It is cold. About 20 kilometres from Borlänge it snowed yesterday. Today was the first day to wear gloves and a warmer coat. Guardrails and lamppost has got colourful garments. Maybe it is time to dance to some Latino music.

Halloween

PumpaPumpkin
It will soon be Halloween. Kids and adults around the world dress up as vampires, witches and Frankenstein. Halloween has its origin from harvest festivals and festivals honouring the dead. Sweden has long been a country without Halloween traditions. Since a few years people in Sweden has picked up some American traditions. Carving pumps is one part of the tradition, but I have still not tried. Maybe this year!
