Benny Andersson’s Orchestra on the roads again!
After just over two years’ time, it´s time for Benny Andersson’s Orchestra, together with Helen Sjöholm and Tommy Körberg, to get out on the Swedish roads again. During 8 evenings the audience is invited to dance at scenic venues, and as loyal ensign for the amusement park concept, BAO is making a success with both the dance-happy BAO audience and holiday guests who like to listen to a concert in the green, with a picnic basket near at hand.
The first album was released in 2001 and has been followed by another 7 studio albums. The list is long and hits like Vår Sista Dans, Du Är Min Man and Fait Accompli, have become modern classics!
In the summer of 2016, shortly before BAO’s latest summer tour, it was time for the orchestra’s latest disc Mitt hjärta klappar för dig, including the streaming hit En natt i köpenhamn. The Music as usual written by Benny Andersson, and for the lyrics Björn Ulvaeus, with special performance from Frida Hyvönen.
In addition to the conductor Benny Andersson (accordion, piano), BAO consists of Kalle Moraeus, Leif Göras, Olle Moraeus and Perra Moraeus (violin, which together constitute the reputed folk group Orsa Musicians), Göran Arnberg, pump organ, Janne Bengtson, flute, Per Grebacken, saxophone & clarinet, Jogga Ernlund, contrabass, Calle Jakobsson, tuba, Leif Lindvall, trumpet, Lars Rudolfsson, accordion, Jörgen Stenberg, drums & percussion, as well as Helen Sjöholm and Tommy Körberg, song.
