Daniel Thorell has won Polstjärnepriset Sweden’s premier competition for Young Musicians across the country.
Daniell Thorell who is 18 and from Åkersberga beat off competition from a large number of musicians from across Sweden during the semi finals and the final. Daniell also wins a total of 50,000 SEK in prize money.
It is not known if Daniell will also go on to represent Sweden at Eurovision Young Musicians 2016. An agreement was signed between SVT and the organisers in 2014 that the winner would go onto Young Musicians, however neither SVT or Polstjärnepriset have announced this since then.
