Team Putte Wins!
The winner of this year’s Körslaget (Sweden’s version of “Clash of the Choirs”) was decided last Saturday night with Team Putte receiving the most votes. The Vetlanda-based choir led by Putte Nelsson won over the nationwide audience with a rousing performance and their sparkling personality. Their many hours of rehearsals and travel back and forth to Stockholm were rewarded with a prize of a half million Swedish kronor to be distributed to the charity of their choice.
If you are a regular reader of this blog, you will remember that the Team Putte choir visited Holsby a few weeks ago to rehearse their next performance and to film an introduction to the show. It gave Holsby some nation-wide exposure, for which we were very grateful. But, because of time constraints in the filming of the introduction, the choir was not able to go through the ropes course and the other adventure activities and initiatives. So, we are inviting the choir to come back in the spring as our guests when we re-open the ropes course. It will be a good opportunity to further connect with our community and our latest celebrity heroes!
