In January, we can celebrate our 42nd birthday. Anne Vad will be a guest of honour at the luncheon to be held on January 23 at Adresse in Hellerup.
Anne has an impressive education, as a school teacher and at Copenhagen University she chose Literature, as her main subject and Art history and Cultural dissemination. She currently works for ‘Kirkeministeriet’.
Anne has a beautiful voice and has sung at a church in Nørrebro for many years. In June this year Anne submitted her text to “Alsang”, a competition to celebrate 75 years since the Liberation of Denmark and her text was voted one of two winners along with ‘Freedom of the Day’ (Frihedens Lysdøgn). The competition is Denmark’s most important song writing competition. She adapted her text to music written by her grandfather and came away with substantial prize money. Her music will be performed in May 2020.
Anne will sing her song during the luncheon after talking about her life, her musical family and the competition.
