September children's program

Happy stomach - angry toes

The program consisted of short pieces by Shostakovich, Bach and Nielsen, plus easy pieces where the children sang along and danced. 25 children between 3 and 9 brought 23 adults with them (or was it vice-versa).
After the 35 minute long program the children queued to try out the instruments.


MalvaKvartetten The Quartet was formed in 2008 at the Academy of Music and Drama at Gothenburg University. 2010 they were admitted to exchange studies at the Hochschule für Musik "Hans Eisler" in Berlin as the first ensemble at bachelor level. 2013 starred Malva Quartet as finalists in the Chamber Music Association's Young & Promising contest. The members are Linnea Hällqvist and Knapp Brita Pettersson, violin; Maria Jonsson, viola and Maja Molander, cello.
