Members were invited to a lively reception and concert hosted by H E Mikaela Kumlin Granit at the Swedish Ambassador's Residence. A special performance was given by Mae Heydorn, the society's 2008-10 music scholar. Mae is a contralto and sang a wonderfully varied repertoire ranging from Wagner to Gilbert and Sullivan. She has enjoyed great success since graduating from the Guildhall of Music and Drama. She was the recipient of the Swedish Wagner Society's Award in 2019 and has performed at Glyndebourne and Cadogan Hall among many others. Mae was accompanied on piano by Ben Woodward, artistic director of Regents Opera.
