David Björkman appointed artistic director
Swedish conductor David Björkman has been appointed music director and artistic director of Livgardets Dragonmusikkår, one of three professional military orchestras in Sweden. Music Inspector Olle Hermansen says: "I am convinced that David Björkman will contribute to a positive development of the military music in its entirety - in concert halls as well as at the ceremonial events. Livgardets Dragonmusikkår is known as the only mounted music band in the Swedish Army. They ride at the head of the guard parade through Stockholm to the Royal Palace. The parade is one of Stockholms finest tourist attractions. The orchestra appears at various musical events, including public concerts in Berwaldhallen in Stockholm.
David Björkman is one of Swedens most requested young conductors who has conducted, among others, the Swedish Radio Symphony Orchestra, the Stockholm Royal Philharmonic, The Gothenburg Symphony Orchestra, Malmö Opera and the Swedish Chamber Orchestra.
