An immigrant’s journey in music
A first ever foray into the Sweden for the BBE, this program begins in the heart of the motherland, featuring the court music of “Sweden’s Handel” Johan Helmich Roman, Anders von Duben, and Sweden’s folk 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/Edgewater neighborhoods.
