Stig Rossen Celebrates 25th Professional Anniversary and He Is Guest Performer on New Double CD

1st March 2014


Dear Newsletter Recipient,

 

STIG CELEBRATES 25TH PROFESSIONAL ANNIVERSARY WITH CONCERT

It seems highly incredible but Stig actually celebrated his 25th professional anniversary last year. It all began 27th February 1988 when Stig took part in the Danish Eurovision Song Contest with the song “Vi danser rock og Rul”, where his entry onto the stage, with an impressive cartwheel jump, made an indelible impression.

Unfortunately, it was difficult for Stig to find time last year for a proper celebration. Instead the anniversary will be marked with a big concert on 18th June this year, where Stig will dig into his impressive musical legacy and remind us of his versatile talent. He will be supported by conductor David Firman and Odense Symphony Orchestra.

The concert takes place at the Concert House in Odense, ticket prices are 305.00 and 355.00 DKK and the sale has just started. Tickets can be purchased here: http://os.billetten.dk/index/eventdetails/eventno/41896 or by calling the number +45 63121314.


NEW DOUBLE CD WITH STIG AS GUEST PERFORMER

In connection with the publication of a book about Easter hymns, a double CD has been produced where Stig appears as guest performer. Both the book and CD’s are entitled ”Easter Hymns” and Stig sings the following 4 Danish songs:  

”Se, nu stiger solen”

”I kvæld blev der banket på Helvedes port”
”Der kom et pust fra den anden side” (new hymn)
”Vi har et håb” (new song)

Stig also sings a duet with Lone Rebecca Damgaard Soerensen. The Danish song is called:

”Min gud, min gud hvorfor har du forladt mig”

In addition, you can hear performances by among others Ann-Mette Elten, Bent Fabricius and the gospel choir Saint Michaels Voices.
