Michaela Hoppe

(born in Jakobsberg, 1965, resident Stockholm, Sweden) is a Swedish composer. She started to compose early in her childhood when she wrote small compilations for the piano, accordion and voice. Her classical writing started when she played the French horn in the Järfälla Symphony Orchestra and started to write an array of classical numbers. When Hoppe was 18 years old, she wrote her first piece for symphony orchestra which was performed the same year in Järfälla. Before attending the Bergslagens Chamber Orchestra summer course in 2007, Hoppe wrote Dagg och regn (Dew and Rain) for the classical wind quintet Berglagens Wind Quintet which also performed the piece at Fredrikshavns Chamber Music Festival in Denmark.
