Benny Andersson and Helen Sjöholm to participate in televised Lucia day celebration
Benny Andersson and Helen Sjöholm, together with fellow members of BAO, Göran Arnberg (organ), and Olle Moreaus (violin), are to participate in this year’s Lucia morning celebrations at Uppsala Cathedral. They will perform alongside the Uppsala Cathedral Choir and the Stockholm Brass Orchestra.
The ceremony, which is part of a national festival and traditionally marks the beginning of Sweden’s Christmas season, will take place on Thursday 13 December. The performance is to be shown on SVT2 at 0700 and will be repeated later the same day on both SVT2 and SVT24.
On 25 August, BAO played their only concert of 2012 in Uppsala’s Vaksala Torg.
