March 16, 2006 - Enjoyed seeing Benny's Ochestra along with Helen singing again. Benny also played his accordion along with piano and other instruments for the unique event marking the 75th Anniversary of the American Swedish Institute in Minnesota........I was lucky to have my photo taken with Helen and to hand her my Kristina cast photo from 10years which she really enjoyed.

Below are assorted photos from the BAO Concert !!!!

Click here for my re-cap of the event !!! 3/29/06

The BAO concert and party hosted by the American Swedish Institute was on Saturday, March 18, 2006 in Minnesota The Benny Anderssons Orkester (BAO), direct from Sweden with his 14-piece band, featured singers Helene Sjm and Tommy Korberg who were truly fantasic. It was a real treat seeing Helen again and meeting her in person again.

About my trip to Minnesota to see Kristina TWICE!!

Hi Everyone !!! First of all I had a great time out there. The weather was fantastic, even better than New Jersey's. Plus the state is beautiful and clean. I'm thinking of making a vacation out there sometime in the future.

The Mall of America was outrageous also. Besides being humongous, it has a ferris wheel, roller coaster, acquarium and everything else imaginable. Luckily I didnt spend too much $$$ there.

I have some great photos for everyone to enjoy from the TWO Kristina performances in Minnesota on Oct. 12th-13th.

Kristina was a great gathering of ABBA fans on and off the list. Jim Preston , Michael T , Jeff de Hart and many others were there from all over the USA !!

The performers are all fantastic and their voices are superb. I just wish I knew some Swedish to better understand the performance.

Peter Jsback, Helen Sjsholm, Anders Ekborg, Asa Bergh were all superb singers and gave memorable performances. I met them all and they were real friendly and cheerful.

My Favorite Song

Peter and Helen were breathtaking - "Du Maste Finnas" was my favorite song sung by Helen. Very powerful song climaxing many times. I get moved by her voice everytime i hear that song
When i was in Stockholm I bought "fran Waterloo till Duvemala" its a fantastic CD of ABBA & Kristina tunes

I saw both performances, one was at Orchestra Hall in Minn., and the other was at a high school in Chisago.

Yes I got the cast's autograph and most importantly I have Benny & Bjorn's autograph on the the ABBA Gold CD booklet (see below). They all gave me no hassle and the security was nothing at the high school (scary isnt it ?). I now have the two B's of ABBA, now I need the two . There will not be many opportunities to meet the members in the U.S. so I didnt want to miss this one. I just wish Agnetha was there also !!!

I'm in the Swedish broadcast of the concert !!!!

I saw the video when i visited a friend in Stockholm and I heard about this from another Swedish friend that towards the end of the video I'm in the video. I have a white shirt on and I'm sitting in the stalls taking photos.

Enjoy..George Lewycky, New Jersey USA 10/19/96
