Eric Sahlström tunes arranged by Niklas

During the fall, Niklas was asked by the  Eric Sahlström Institute to arrange some of Eric Sahlströms compositions. Five of the songs have been arranged for children’s group, from almost beginners to those who played a little longer. The idea is that the arrangements to be used in teaching eg music schools around the country.
Niklas has also organized three songs for ESI All Time Band, a big band consisting of former and current students at ESI.
The premiere of the events took place on Oktoberstämman in Uppsala on October 26.
