You can promote Swedish music and contribute to the preservation of The Alfvén Estate as a composer's home. In the idyllic village of Tibble outside Leksand lived the composer Hugo Alfvén, considered by many to be Sweden's foremost national romantic composer. This unique composer's home was built thanks to a generous donation by the Swedish people and was completed in 1945 for Hugo Alfvén and his wife Carin Alfvén.
Now Alfvéngården is an important cultural heritage, open to visitors during the summer, but pre-booked visits are also welcome during the winter. Everything to distribute and preserve Hugo Alfvén's artistic work for Swedish cultural and musical life.
There are various opportunities to contribute to this cultural heritage:
