EQ Alumni: Americana with Hannigan


Barbara will return to conduct Gothenburg Symphony and will be joined by Swedish EQ Alumni Sofie Asplund.

The incredible Barbara Hannigan is the Symphony Orchestra’s principal guest conductor. At this performance, she leads the orchestra through iconic music from the US – Gershwin’s drama Porgy and Bess, with melodies like Summertime and I Got Plenty O’ Nuttin’, in an arrangement for symphony orchestra. We also hear Samuel Barber’s atmospheric Knoxville: Summer of 1915, for soprano and orchestra. The soloist is Sofie Asplund, acclaimed for performances internationally and with GöteborgsOperan and the Royal Swedish Opera.
