Kitee International Music and Art Festival

At the beginning of July I went to Finland to participate in Kitee International Music and Art Festival. It is a festival created by Plamen Dimov, Nightwish’s old music teacher and the participants of the festival are made up of talented Nightwish fans from around the world; musicians, singers, artists and poets. I am back home now and I am slowly beginning to process the experiences I had during my two weeks there. First of all, a huge THANK YOU to Plamen Dimov for allowing me to participate in this wonderful festival. It was such a joy to meet and perform with so many talented musicians and artists. Two weeks flew by with incredible speed and I wish I had had more time to spend with everyone. But hopefully I will get to see everyone again one day.

I performed during three concerts and I sang ‘Heart Asks the Pleasure First’, ‘Sleeping Sun’, ‘Ocean Soul’, ‘Slow Love Slow’ and ‘Forever Yours’. I also performed a song by Swedish singer/songwriter Melissa Horn, ‘Jag Saknar Dig Mindre och Mindre’, as well as an original piece that I wrote together with Andrew Wrangell, one of the pianists I performed with during the festival.

It was great to be able to perform the music of Nightwish on stage, since it was Nightwish that made me want to study classical singing in the first place. A truly wonderful experience.

Lastly, I want to send a second thank you to the two pianists I performed with during the festival, Emil Westerhagen and Andrew Wrangell. I had a great time performing with both of them, and I may have a very exciting collaboration coming up, so stay tuned for that!

If you have a minute you should check out both Emil and Andrew. They are very talented and you can find their respective youtube channels here:

Emergenza 2016

Back in February Lapis Lazuli once again played at the Emergenza festival/competition in Stockholm. It was a really fun gig and we had a pretty big audience, unlike last time. The overall experience was great, aside from the fact that we didn’t advance to the next round. But we will not let that bring us down and we will continue to do our thing and improve. I uploaded the videos from the gig to my media gallery here on the site, so feel free to check them out viagra une. I hope you like the songs!

Spring cleaning!

I decided to update my website a little bit, give it a bit of a makeover as well as clean up a little in the menus viagra le moins cher. You will now find all pictures under the same tab and all videos under the same tab as well. I no longer have a crazy amount of submenus for you to navigate through. Hopefully that will make it easier for you to find what you are looking for. I also added a new video from when I performed Dido’s Lament at the Opera studio’s christmas production. Enjoy!

Stockholm Opera Studio

On June 5th I graduated from Musikhögskolan in Piteå and at the end of the summer I moved down to Stockholm to continue my studies at Stockholm Opera Studio. School’s been in session for about a month now and so far I am loving every minute of it. It’s great to be able to immerse myself into the world of opera and dig deep. I will continue to update on my progress at the Opera Studio in my blog, so head on over for more in depth posts about my new life in Stockholm.

I have also updated the site a little bit. I added new songs to the categories “classical”, “crossover” and “with Lapis Lazuli” under the music tab and I also updated the bio.

Dido’s Lament

We had a concert in school today and it went really well! Luckily I recorded the whole thing and will in time put up both of the arias that I sang on soundcloud, but for now you’ll have to be satisfied with just one. It is Dido’s death aria from the opera “Dido and Aeneas” by Henry Purcell and you can find it under the media/music/classical tab in the menu above viagra 50 ou 100 mg. I hope you’ll like it!

Lapis Lazuli’s next album, The Downfall of Humanity, is finally finished! It will be released later this fall and today we posted a first teaser on youtube! I really hope you’ll like it, since we’ve spent so much time and love on this. I am immensely proud of our album at least. Will update once I have a set releasedate for the album!

Enjoy!
