Magnus receives this Year’s Thore Ehrling Scholarship!
The jury’s motivation:
Now, twenty years after his death, we can be sure that Thore Ehrling would have been delighted by the news that the jury of his foundation specifically selected Magnus Lindgren to this year’s scholarship. Thore Ehrling’s orchestra was no longer there, since many years, when Magnus was born in Västerås in 1974, but it was certainly an inspiration for his brilliant career as a jazz musician with saxophone, flute and clarinet as his instruments, but also as an excellent arranger and composer with great success in both Sweden and internationally. Completely in Thore’s spirit!
