Our popular Summer Jazz Series returns to Scandinavia House! This summer we’re presenting performances from some of Scandinavia’s most talented young jazz musicians, composers, and singers on Thursday evenings in June and July. On June 29, see a performance by Risberg Stenmark duo, featuring Loke Risberg on guitar and Oskar Stenmark on horns and effects. Oskar Stenmark and Loke Risberg first began collaborating in 2007 when they attended the same music school in Gothenberg, Sweden. Since then, they have been making music in various constellations on both sides of the Atlantic, as Risberg went on to attend Berklee College of Music and Stenmark to Manhattan School of Music. In this highly anticipated reunion, the duo will present original material mixed with jazz and folk from Sweden and the U.S.
