Henrik KrogsgårdBorn: April 27th, 1951, Gentofte (Denmark)
Henrik Krogsgård was the musical director of several editions of the Danish Eurovision preselection and conducted seven Danish entries in the international final between 1984 and 1992. In 1989, Krogsgård spectacularly left his place in front of the orchestra half way through the performance of Birthe Kjær’s song ‘Vi maler byen rød’ to join the background singing group behind the soloist; the rest of the song was conducted by the Swiss musical director of that year’s contest, Benoît Kaufman. Just like the 1988 effort in which he was involved leading the orchestra, ‘Vi maler byen rød’ finished third.
In due course, a more extensive biography of Henrik Krogsgård will be published on this website
