From Opera to ABBA: Music in Sweden

Grade Level
K-6th Grade

This year for the 2018 Collaborative Summer Library Reading theme “Libraries Rock”, introduce families to the music of Sweden by booking the American Swedish Historical Museum’s outreach program!


This rocking program will have kids dancing and singing to the music of Sweden. Families will get an introduction to classical opera, traditional folk, ABBA, and even discover the Swedish musicians of today. Children will explore Swedish culture and how music is integrated into daily life and holiday traditions while performing an opening operatic warm-up, collaborative choral song, fanfare fiddle craft & folk dance finale. Keep the fun times rolling on the ride home with a take home CD of traditional and contemporary Swedish music!

The program is 60 minutes long and the cost is $100 (additional travel fees apply for sessions more than 20 miles away). Contact Lauren Burnham, Education & Public Program Manager, at lburnham@americanswedish.org or (215) 389-1776 x 106, to book your program today!
