WELCOME TO OUR PERFORMERS!!
Sandy Seufert began her musical life on the cello and has performed with the Culver City Symphony Orchestra the past 20 years. But in 2001, she started an inspired journey on the violin to explore her Swedish heritage and to give life to the beautiful and complex music from that region. Now Sandy performs at monthly local Scandinavian dances and at cultural events around Southern California. This past summer she went on her first visit to Sweden and had the chance to play alongside folk music icons in the midnight sun. Sandy is now composing new tunes in the Swedish tradition and regularly shares her joy for this music and traditions.
