She is educated in the fields of violin, piano and organ as well as composition, which she has studied at the Royal College of Music in Stockholm, Sweden, and at Indiana University, USA. Palmér’s music has been performed by numerous ensembles in Sweden and abroad. Recently, she has been particularly occupied with choral compositions.
