Who will pen the lyrics for the jubilee?
The idea is a text which can be set to a melody and sung, or recited and integrated into the musical piece. Imagine a collage in which music and lyrics alternate throughout the performance.
The celebrations will include symposia, parties, exhibitions, student evenings and musical events. An original piece of music will be composed for the jubilee and performed by the Academic Orchestra, the Academic Choir and soloists. Hans Gefors, opera composer and former professor at Lund University’s Academy of Music, will compose the work.
LU would like to try to renew an ancient jubilee tradition in an unconventional way and are looking for innovative approaches which can nevertheless be suitable in a ceremonial context. A total of SEK 25 000 will be awarded for the best contribution/s.
