Welcome to the Jussi Björling Appreciation Society (U.K.)

THE UK SOCIETY has been in existence for over 25 years and we have supported and shared knowledge with our Swedish and US colleagues, mainly by sharing articles for publication.

We are increasingly using internet to communicate with our members but still send out mailings a couple of times a year and distribute the journal put out by the US society and additional newsletters .

We have held meetings and concerts in London, but we find members are not able to travel far.

Membership charges are £ 23 a year and we try to send out a CD or photos as a bonus, from time to time.

Chairman: Richard Copeman

Newsletter editor/secretary: Robert Manderson (manderson@waitrose.com).
