Sunshine on Birgit’s birthday

Birthday, Stipendium and flag raising! Birgit’s birthday (106 years old) was celebrated with municipal flag day! At 10:00 the flag was raised as usual together with invited guests and the public. This year’s Birgit Nilsson Stipendium holder was announced at 11 at the museum and it went to the soprano Matilda Sterby who, as on August 9, receives SEK 250,000 at a recital in Västra Karup’s church as part of the celebration of the Birgit Nilsson days. Read more about the Stipendium here. Birgit Nilsson Museum continued the celebration with an OPEN HOUSE in the afternoon with free entry to this year’s exhibition. Mamsellen in Stallkaféet was open and offered the Birgit Nilsson pastries!
