Spring Concert

After many months of persistent cold weather, spring has conquered our land. A change that softens our joints and invites to new, fresh perspectives.
This is also the case for yesterday's concert, where I played and sung with Pian' e Forte and Uppsala Kammarkör. It was the first time for me in the new Concert Hall.
I was impressed by the versatility of the small auditorium, Sal B, where a subtle artificial reverb filled in and enriched the choral sound.
I now appreciate the challenge in playing the drum and singing at the same time. The singing comes out quite well, but the drum sounds rather randomly... Hopefully, it amused someone!

The New Train Station

Uppsala just opened its new train station; with underground access to the platforms (no more waiting for passing trains), shops, restaurants and SPACE. Much needed for a city with many commuters. Enjoy the pictures!
