Danish/Swedish trio to perform in Sydney Opera House!

By Danish Roots |

For the first time in its history, the Crown Prince Couple’s Award Show will take place outside Denmark as the Royal couple will participate in a Danish-Australian celebration of the 40th anniversary of the Sydney Opera House.

The Crown Prince Couple’s Awards will be presented in person by HRH Crown Prince Frederik and HRH Crown Princess Mary at a large-scale televised show where both Danish and Australian artists will perform. This will happen on the 28th of October 2013.

Amongst the artist you’ll find the young Danish trio, Dreamer’s Circus, featuring the Danish violinist Rune Tonsgaard Sørensen, who play a unique mix of classical music and folk. Rune Tonsgaard Sørensen will receive the “Rising Star Award” at Sydney Opera House:

“Violinist Rune Tonsgaard Sørensen was born in 1983 and began playing the violin at the age of 5 at the Danish Suzuki Institute of Music. Despite his young age he is now concertmaster of Copenhagen Phil and also plays in the Danish String Quartet and in the trio, Dreamers’ Circus. In addition, he teaches at the Royal Danish Academy of Music. Rune Tonsgaard Sørensen has been selected by the Crown Prince Couple as they were impressed by his precise yet sensitive playing of the violin, superior technology and melodiousness. Few musicians in the classical world have made a greater impact of mixing classical music with Danish folk”.

Dreamer’s Circus are: Rune Tonsgaard Sørensen (violin), Nikolaj Busk (accordion, piano) and Ale Carr (bouzouki).
