El Sistema Sweden about Signatur

”Thanks to the support from Signatur, we are able to enhance the opportunity for children and young people to qrow through music with El Sistema throughout Sweden. The goal is to give all children and young people the opportunity to fulfil their dreams and accomplish something for themselves. To create music – for a better life.” 

Eric Sjöström, Chairman El Sistema Sweden

Royal Stockholm Philharmonic Orchestra Head about Signatur

“It is with great joy and gratitude that we who work with music in Sweden welcome Signatur Foundation Sweden. The need to be able to quickly apply for funding for various projects aimed at the widest possible public is great. Signatur Foundation Sweden, through its efficient management, enables a quick implementation of new exciting projects both for the short and long term where the focus on children and young people feels particularly important. The foundation’s establishment is a very welcome addition to the funding options currently available for public music life and will enrich it in a tangible way. I am full of admiration that a successful businessman and his family choose to share their financial resources to promote Swedish music life. I hope Erland Karlsson’s love for music inspires many more to do something like that – the Royal Stockholm Philharmonic Orchestra is very grateful for the cooperation with Signatur Foundation Sweden and looks forward to many exciting projects in the future!”
