Over the Rainbow – Judy Garland’s 100th birthday

Isabella Lundgren and the Royal Stockholm Philharmonic Orchestra pay tribute to an involuntary icon through music and stories from her life. Special guest: Bo Sundström.

Over the Rainbow: Judy Garland’s life is defined by her search for the rainbow with which she is forever associated. She became an icon – a beloved, admired, highly awarded artist and actor, and she has a well-established place in history books as one of the foremost entertainers of the twentieth century.

Judy Garland was born in Minnesota on 10 June 1922. On this day 100 years later, Isabella Lundgren and a band, together with the Royal Stockholm Philharmonic Orchestra, perform music and present stories from Judy Garland’s life.

Isabella Lundgren is one of Sweden’s most prominent jazz singers. “This divinely talented singer is among the best on the jazz scene”, Svenska Dagbladet wrote.  ”It is as if she makes time slow down, simply by being.” Isabella Lundgren is a great admirer of Judy Garland, and the initiator of this tribute. We also hear a guest performance from Bo Sundström, frontman of Bo Kaspers Orkester.

Indeed, this is a tribute to Judy Garland and her immortal music, but it is also the story of the other side of success, and the power of music – which can alleviate loneliness, even when the rainbow and sparkle feel far away. In Judy Garland’s singing, we hear not the icon, but the person – the woman who experienced both heaven and hell. Audiences were so deeply moved when she sang that they hardly dared to breathe.
