Modern Fantazias interprets the Beach Boys, bluegrasszoombies, Elvis, hymns, Dolly Parton ...


For the third time, the chamber orchestra Modern Fantazia performes at Södra Teatern. This time, they dig themselves deep into the American soil. Dystopian marches, Beach Boys, bluegrasszoombies, Elvis, hymns, Dolly Parton, preachers, avant-gardism, backing vocals, Charles Ives, strings and highways urged to life in the surreal and unpredictable dream vision of America and the American.

Arranger and conductor Hans Ek has a unique position in the Swedish music scene. He has close relationships with Rebecka Törnqvist, the Radio Symphony Orchestra, Bjorn and Benny, Louise Hoffsten, Salem al Fakir, Ale Möller and many more. He is also responsible for the Polar Music Prize as an arranger and conductor and has orchestrated numerous films, notably "Let the Right One In".

Modern Fantazia consists of a distinguished cast of musicians including musicians from the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra and the cream of Sweden's improvisation musicians.

In the two previous concerts on Södra Teatern Modern Fantazia has done a fantastic collaboration with Ane Brun and at the next opportunity they interpreted Kraftwerks "Trans Europe Express".

We have loved every second.
