MARCIA BOYESEN AND ROGER LATZGO
Marcia Boyesen and Roger Latzgo began collaborating on musical programs nearly two decades ago. Since that time, the duo has won national acclaim, including a prestigious International Angel Award for Excellence in Media. Their numerous recordings are popular worldwide. Marcias musical journey began with singing in church and progressed through study in master classes at Westminster Choir College. Roger learned music at his accordion-playing grandfathers knee and continued through academic work at Rutgers College and the Mason Gross School of the Arts. Together they have studied with art song masters Elly Ameling and Dalton Baldwin. Marcias lyric soprano voice combines with Rogers classical experience in piano and guitar to weave a musical tapestry that brings their Story Songs to life. In their program for Scanfest 2017, Marcia and Roger present Hans Christian Andersen StorySongs. Songs include Rogers musical settings of The Ugly Duckling, The Steadfast Tin Soldier, The Little Match Girl and others. Among the newer StorySongs is Latzgos musical version of a lesser-known Hans Christian Andersen story sometimes translated as The Millennium. In it, Andersen imagines what travel in Europe will be like one thousand years from his own time. The master storyteller spins it with uncanny accuracy. Latzgo makes it contemporary with a tempo di rap setting. Marcia and Roger are on a musical mission: to enhance understanding and deep appreciation of quality literature through the power of music. We know that ScanFest audiences will love joining them on this journey.

Oskar Stenmark Trio
In Gärdebyn, Dalecarlia, you will find an important and ancient music tradition. The small Swedish village has been a cultural hub for over two hundred years. Oskar Stenmark, a flugelhorn player, is the tenth generation in his family to pass on this tradition, much thanks to his (paternal) grandmother Elsie Börjes, who grew up in Gärdebyn. Elsie went on a U.S. tour with a group of fiddlers in 1956, when she was only 17 years old. Oskar brings the melodies from past to present, now 61 years later. The trio has toured in Scandinavia, and recently finished a successful tour in Minneapolis, Chicago, Rockford, Bishop Hill, Eau Claire, St. Paul, Washington D.C. and New York City. Together with Swedish bass player Lars Ekman and Ukrainian-American pianist Alex Pryrodny, the group will perform polskas, waltzes and walking tunes, mixed with a contemporary expression and sounds from New York.

Estonia may be a small nation of just 1.3 million people, but its vibrant spirit is expressed most notably through song and dance, and Pillerkaar is proud to share that spirit with America!

Scandinavian Women's Chorus of Rhode Island
In 1984, several Rhode Island members of the Eastern Division Womens Chorus of the American Union of Swedish Singers (AUSS) decided to form their own chorus in RI. Under the sponsorship of the Verdandi Male Chorus, which had been in existence since 1892, they met and invited interested singers to join them and search for a director. In 1986 they were voted into membership in the American Union of Swedish Singers. They were formed mainly to perpetuate Swedish culture, language and music. The chorus performs several times a year in concerts and sings at the AUSS- sponsored conventions and singing festivals every two years, on an alternating basis. The SWC often sang in concert together with the Verdandi Male Chorus. Unfortunately the Verdandi Male Chorus disbanded in 2010. We sing Scandinavian and English music for womens' choruses. We are a self-supporting organization, with funds coming primarily through performances and fundraisers. Every year the chorus sponsors the Kristina Greiner Memorial Scholarship, awarded to a young lady interested in Swedish music and culture. The candidates must be between a junior in High School through College.

IVA
IVA is a true crossover artist, singer-songwriter and bandleader, art song interpreter and opera singer whose ethereal vocals and heartfelt songwriting have carried her across two continents and successfully bridged musical genres. Originally trained in New York City conservatories, she moved to Stockholm, Sweden on a Fulbright scholarship. After her first year abroad, she gained rave reviews for her concerts and was poised for a full time career as a classical singer. But thanks to a chance meeting, she decided to move in a different direction. At at New York gym she got to chatting with the casting director of Late Night with Conan O'Brien, who asked her to sing on the show. Max Weinberg took notice and IVA returned many times as a singer and actress. Then she was introduced to producer Manech Ibar by violinist Joshua Bell. With Ibar she made her first album of her own material, the self-titled "IVA," on French/New York label Vurse. A few years later she wrote her second album, "Ivolution," with songwriting and production team Martin and Andreas Karlegård. The album was picked up by Universal Sweden and IVA was featured in Billboard magazine, heard on national radio and TV, all while making her debut at the Royal Opera of Stockholm creating the role of Tamar in Sven-David Sandström's Batseba. Then events took a surprising turn for IVA. Ready to return to the Opera in 2010, they were struck by a financial crisis and IVA decided to travel back to the United States. She took the opportunity to reflect on her sound. Convinced that it was time for her to put together her own band, she started working with Philadelphia and Delaware musicians and released the EP "Leap" in 2015 with Grammy winning producer Tim Sonnefeld. The well-received album has been featured on NPR stations around the country, and here at home at WXPN Philadelphia. IVA has performed across the United States with her band and classical repertoire in eclectic venues like the Barnes Foundation, World Cafe Live, Lincoln Center, the New York Public Theatre and the Aspen Music Festival. She toured Europe last summer with Julie Nishimura at the piano performing Chopin, Copeland, and Strauss. Last year the Vasa Order of America named IVA Swedish American of the Year for her contributions to cultural exchange between Sweden and to the United States. She is the youngest honoree to date, and received the award in Värmeland, Sweden in July 2015.

Laura Marek
Lauramari is an artist with a rich background and affinity for languages that make her a very dynamic performer. Although she was born and raised in a small town in PA, her Finnish heritage, good command of the Finnish language and experience of living in Finland for several years, have made her about as Finnish as one can get. Being raised by musical parents left her no choice other than to pick up an instrument or two and start singing since before she could even talk. Her love of Finnish music, particularly Värttinä, started with a little trip to a Scandinavian specialty store, Viking Village, about 10 years ago, where she bought her first Värttinä album. Once she heard their music, she was hooked. It was during this time she knew that she wanted to perform songs like these at Scanfest.

After over 20 years of classical study in Minneapolis, Taipei, and Helsinki, she again became restless  this time to find musical connection/voice/path. These explorations, as of late, have manifested work connected to her Finnish heritage. An extremely versatile violinist with a propensity for adventure in culture and sound, Sara performs in many genres of music, including Nordic fiddle, Argentine tango, classical and jazz. Curious and serious about music as an expression of the self, she is constantly experimenting with new techniques of sound creation.
