Jenny Hettne was the recipient of the Salt Lake Foundation’s Järnåker grant for the work “A swarm came in from the dark” in 2018. The award ceremony took place at the beginning of the year but the piece was never performed at that time. Now the audience gets the opportunity to hear the piece in connection with the concert on March 17 at Musikaliska. Read more about Jenny Hettne here>>
