SING A SONG FIGHTER: This unique album really stands out. A one time live experience featuring a large chamber orchestra along with a pop band and in front of it all: the one and only Birgit Bidder!

This is Birgit's first and only existing compositions and arrangements for chamber orchestra and pop band.
Inspired by Penguin Café Orchestra, Neu!, Funk Brothers and Bernard Herrmann, among many of Birgit’s influences, the performance took place on the main stage at Södra Teatern in Stockholm.

- One of my goals was to make us musicians feel as alive and needed in the music as possible. To bring a smile to their faces and set myself free, says Birgit.

Just before the show was starting, sound engineer Nille Perned persuaded Birgit to record the music, and to not have it vanish into space which was Birgit’s first thought. Now, this one time moment of wonder is continuing to live on via this vinyl album being released by Sing a song fighter.
