Togheter with trumpeter Peter Asplund, Magnus Lindgren is the leader of Konserthuset’s own big band, Blue House Jazz Orchestra, and a frequent guest at Konserthuset.
His artistic talent was already discovered at a young age: at the age of fourteen, he toured for the first time with his father's big band, and at the age of seventeen he played on stage with Herbie Hancock.
Lindgren studied saxophone at the Royal College of Music in Stockholm, where he focused on the flute and the clarinet as well. In this time he performed on various stages in and around Stockholm. In 1999 he released his debut album, which received a Swedish Grammy nomination.
Later he won various prizes, for example the Swedish royal medal 'Litteris et Artibus' for outstanding artistic contributions. In addition, Lindgren composed for and performed at the Nobel banquet twice.
