From the flute to soundtracks

Published: 17 February 2015

The midwinter festival is a music festival where mainly the School of Music's students get the opportunity to prove themselves and give concerts. The festival is a collaboration between Luleå University of Technology and Studio Acusticum. Even non-students participate, this year it is one of the nine concerts in which the participants are not students at the university.

What is the best thing about this year's festival?

–This year's edition of the midwinter festival offers a mixed program, ranging from film music and pop, to the goodies from the 1700's. Most of the School of Music specializations are also represented in this year's program, which I personally think is important. This is a festival where everyone is welcome to participate

Can you tell us something more about the program item Forgotten schlagerclassics?

– The theme came as a very pleasant surprise for me. I gave an ensemble at Studio musicians free hand to fill a concert with an optional theme. This resulted in a pop theme. At the concert we're treated to some of the songs that never made it all the way perhaps not even to the Melodifestivalen final, but that should have gone further ..?
