The annual Jenny Lind Concert is a beloved and long-running Yerba Buena Gardens Festival tradition that showcases the most extraordinary young sopranos from Sweden. This yearâ€™s program introduces 26-year-old Kine SandtrÃ¸ and Julia SjÃ¶stedt, 23. Hailing from TrÃ¸ndelag, Norway, SandtrÃ¸ enrolled in her candidate program at the University College of Opera in Stockholm, Sweden last year. SjÃ¶stedt is from HÃ¤rnÃ¶sand in Sweden and just started her Masterâ€™s Degree under the guidance of Stefan Bojsten. She performs as a soloist and as a chamber musician, and has earned several scholarships, including one from the Royal Swedish Academy of Music.
