Gehrmans News

News from one of Scandinavia's leading classical music publishers

Gehrmans’ music performed in Washington and San Francisco


Gustaf Sjökvist’s chamber choir

is part of the  Nordic Cool 2013 in the Kennedy Center, starting on 19 February. The choir has a concert at the Kennedy Center the same night as the Royal Stockholm Philharmonic Orchestra open the festival. It is in other words a Swedish evening in many ways, even if the grip is Nordic.

Although many of us can not be there and listen to the music, we’ve solved the matter with a Spotify playlist. Most of the pieces that will be performed during the tour will be found and heard in the following list.

Music on GSKK’s tour Nordic Cool USA 2013.

After Washington and another concert at the Library of Congress, the choir catch a  flight to San Francisco and do a performance in the Grace Cathedral. We wish GSKK a most successful tour and are delighted of all the good Swedish music  they bring to their concerts!
