I Birgit Sparres fotspår 1
På denna utflykt får du stifta bekantskap med platser där författarinnan Birgit Sparre varit verksam eller skrivit om och kyrkor som på olika sätt har anknytning till de berättelser som gjort henne känd. Utflykten är främst inriktad på romanserien Gårdarna runt sjön medan utflykten I Birgit Sparres fotspår 23 handlar mer om Glimringe-serien. Turen i sin helhet är möjlig 14 juli 3 augusti och bör påbörjas mitt på dagen så att man är i Finnekumla ca klockan 15 när kyrkan öppnar. Tidsåtgång ca 4-5 timmar med fika.
Birgit Sparres park
Börja turen i centrala Ulricehamn. Från stationsbyggnaden vid sjön ser du Brunnsnäs herrgård på andra sidan sjön, en herrgård med flygelbyggnader. I en av flyglarna tillbringade författarinnan sina sista år. Promenera uppåt centrum.
Nära stationshuset (där också turistbyrån finns) ligger Birgit Sparres park med en staty av författarinnan. Skulpturen är gjord av Wanja Nones Håkansson i samband med 100-årsfirandet 2003 av författarinnans födelse.
Ta höger på gågatan (Storgatan). Där passerar du ytterligare en skulptur av samma konstnär, nämligen Bleckknallen, en yrkeskategori i denna knallebygd som Birgit Sparre skrev mycket om.
Fortsätt på gågatan ända fram till Stora torget. Vid torget ligger huvudkyrkan i den församling där författarinnan bodde då hon avled är Ulricehamns kyrka. Den byggdes redan till 1300-talet men har sedan byggts om och till i flera omgångar. Kyrkan är öppen dagligen året om.
Åsundsholm och Sjöred
Kör 157:an mot Gällstad, sväng mot Vegby. I Vegby, fortsätt rakt fram mot Borås och sväng sedan vänster vid skylten Åsundsholm. Utmed vägen ligger huset där Birgit Sparre bodde från tonåren och till vuxen ålder och dit hon också återvände efter skilsmässan från Theodor Thäberg. Här skrev hon många av sina böcker. Åsundsholm är idag Golf & Country club med restaurang och café.
När du åker vidare passerar du också Sjöred, herrgården där författarinnan växte upp hos grevparet Sparre, den gård som i böckerna är Dianas Stjärnö. Sjöred är privatägt och inte möjligt att besöka.
Vid Finnekumla kyrka, byggd på medeltiden, finns Birgit Sparres grav. Här vilar hon tillsammans med sina föräldrar strax öster om kyrkans kor. Några av kyrkans inventarier är skänkta av Birgits mamma Signe, bland annat ett krucifix.
Följ skyltning mot Länghem och innan du kommer fram till Länghem, mot Hofsnäs och Torpa stenhus. Hofsnäs Herrgård ligger utmed vägen till Torpa. Hofsnäs är Lindö i Birgits böcker. Här finns badplats, picknickplatser och inne på herrgården kan du njuta av hembakt fika och vällagad mat. Här finns också hantverksförsäljning.

HISTORY OF THE BACH FESTIVAL SOCIETY:
One of Kalamazoo’s oldest musical organizations, the Kalamazoo Bach Festival Society was founded in 1946 by Henry Overley, Professor of Music at Kalamazoo College, who wanted to bring "town and gown" together to experience the joy of making music and to create something sublime — in particular, to recreate the choral and instrumental music of J. S. Bach and his contemporaries. Participants included visiting artists, local professional musicians, college and high school students, and many amateur performers. A performance of Bach’s St. Matthew Passion inaugurated the Festival in March 1947. In its early years, the season consisted of a Christmas concert and a spring festival week, featuring many distinguished guest artists. In the past 65 years, the Society has grown and expanded, due to the active involvement of the community: now year-long, it includes middle and elementary school outreach, Bach Legacy Lectures, a "Bach-Around-the-Block" organ crawl, a Young Vocalist Competition and Concert, a High School Choral Festival, master classes for young singers, the annual sing-along Bach Community Chorale, a Bach’s Lunch concert, and performances with the Kalamazoo Symphony, as well as our traditional Christmas concert and gala finale concert. The Society’s repertoire has expanded to include not only the music by Bach and his contemporaries, but also modern composers of the 19th, 20th, and 21st centuries. The Bach Festival Society concludes its season each year with the performance of a major symphonic choral work of Bach or another master composer (Bach’s B Minor Mass in 2003 and 2007, St. John Passion in 2012, and Cantata No. 71 in 2010, Mendelssohn’s Elijah in 1998, Mozart’s Requiem in 1999 and 2006, Solemn Vespers in 2004, and C Minor Mass in 2011, Haydn’s Lord Nelson Mass in 2000 and 2009, Brahms’ German Requiem in 2002, Handel’s Messiah, Parts II and III in 2005, and Rachmaninoff’s Vespers in 2008). Its mission is to bring together people of all ages and diverse backgrounds and provide them with an opportunity to experience the joy of making music by performing some of the best works in the choral repertoire.
Mission: The mission of the Kalamazoo Bach Festival is to bring excellent vocal, choral and instrumental music to the widest possible audience in southwest Michigan through performances of major works by the Bach Festival Chorus and orchestra, the sponsorship of renowned vocal artists and choral groups and educational outreach activities. The Kalamazoo Bach Festival focuses on the music of J. S. Bach and composers from the Renaissance to the contemporary era.
2012-13 Kalamazoo Bach Festival events are made possible by Arts Council of Greater Kalamazoo, Arts Fund of Kalamazoo County, Burdick-Thorne Foundation, H.P. and Genevieve Connable Fund, Dorothy U. Dalton Foundation, Irving S.
