In connection with the wedding between Crown Princess Victoria and Mr Daniel Westling the Swedish Parliament invited the couple to a gala concert in the Stockholm concert hall. Many leading artists took part and among them were OD.
OD was honored to perform the famous ”Anvil Chorus” from Guiseppe Verdis opera ”Il Trovatore” with a funny text, written by the concert’s producer Peter Ström, accompanied by the Royal Philharmonic orchestra lead by Mats Rondin. In addition to this, OD sang with Lars Cleveman in the Nessum Dorma aria from ”Turandot” by Puccini, as well as Peter Jöback and Helene Sjöholm in ”Come What May” from the musical ”Moulin Rouge” by Baerwald/Gilbert and in the grand finale ”Can’t help falling in love” which turned in to a wonderful summer song written by Anders Neglin and performed by all the artists together with a children’s choir from Adolf Fredriks music classes. OD was pleased to see several of its honorary members on stage including opera singers Malena Ernman and Peter Mattei, clarinet-player Martin Fröst and the host of the show and director of Stockholms konserthus, Stefan Forsberg.
