October/November WORKSHOPS for youth fiddlers

On October 27th and November 3rd, we will welcome youth fiddlers at ASI for a workshop where we share tunes with one another. Margaretha Mattsson from Dalarna will bring 9 youth fiddlers on both dates. This event is for ASI youth fiddlers and Vikarbylag fiddlers only, as space is limited in our classroom those days. We will meet in classroom A on the 27th and classroom B on the 3rd. Welcome!


We will rehearse for our performance in the Lucia concerts at ASI. We will also prepare music for our summer 2020 Sweden trip.

This year, Ingela will lead the Lucia Choir rehearsals and performances at ASI. November Lilla lag rehearsals will therefore depend on how the Lucia rehearsals are set up. As of now, the choirs practice 1-4pm every Sunday in November and the first Sunday in December. If we keep our regular Lilla lag rehearsal times, (1-2:30pm Sundays), Ingela will ask another fiddler to lead the Lilla lag those weeks. During the last rehearsals, the Lilla lag will join the choirs as we put the program together for the performances.

The dress rehearsal for the Lucia concerts is on December 11th, approximately 5:30pm. Please plan to be there for that rehearsal.

The Lilla lag will perform in the Lucia concerts. They are December 13th, 6:30pm, and December 14th, 10am and 1pm.

We welcome new youth fiddlers to join our group. There is even room for a few more fiddlers who would like to join us on our Sweden tour 2020. Please contact Ingela Eilert Haaland for more information.
