Four Jacks - Charity Golf Tournament and Future Plans

31st August 2009


Dear Newsletter Recipient,


FOUR JACKS

Stig is scheduled to start yet another series of “Four Jacks” theatreconcerts, which will take place at the cosy theatre “Glassalen” in Tivoli,Copenhagen. The show will run from 1st to 13th September. You will find more information on Stigs homepage under “Calendar”.



GOLF CHARITY TOURNAMENT IN AID OF ”SAVE THE CHILDREN” (RED BARNET)

Stig will participate in a golf tournament 4th September for the benefit of “Save the Children”. The tournament takes place at Ree Golf in Helsinge.


FUTURE PLANS

Stig has asked us to tell you a little about his current projects and future plans.

He is currently working on the upcoming Christmas Tour, which will include ac elebration of the tour’s 15 year jubilee. Stig has received a wealth of inspiration from his audience, the competition which ran during the tour last year also provided a lot of ideas, and so the choices are staggering.


Stig is also planning a promotional campaign in Germany, which will include a CD in German.

Furthermore, Stig is trying to establish cooperation with a number of symphony orchestras in the United States. He would like to return to his roots as it were, and emulate the way his career in Denmark took off while working with South Jutland Symphony Orchestra. Stig is curious to know where this might lead.

A new US Tour is in the works. It is scheduled for the period 1st to 12thFebruary 2010. Stig is hoping that this tour will include at least one or two concerts in cooperation with a symphony orchestra. Only one concert is confirmed at the moment. This is the concert which was scheduled to take place in Englewood, Florida on the 9th February this year, but had to be cancelled due to the birth of Stig’s son Philip.

Last but certainly not least, Stig is scheduled to do a voice test for an upcoming Disney film 2nd September. This is a standard requirement issued by the Disney Production Company. Hopefully, he will be met with their approval again.
