Bjorn Olsson

Bjorn spent the first couple of decades as a professional singer and actor, in his native Sweden as well as in Switzerland, Germany, Denmark and the US. He and his wife Karina began volunteering at the Tarrytown Music Hall in the early naughts and have since built the historic theater into a nationally recognized performing arts venue, as well as  a popular community stage for recitals, film and local fundraisers. With over 200 events and over 95,000 visitors, the 843 seat theater, once considered a “white elephant” and slated for demolition, the Music Hall is now an indispensable destination, employer and economic driver for Westchester County. When not tearing out his hair about how to best get his beloved Music Hall ready for another 135 or so years, he is doing it to keep up with his two young daughters. “We are blessed to not be likely to run out of challenges for the foreseeable future!”
