100 years of school concerts

The Royal Stockholm Philharmonic has been staging school concerts for every year since 1917. The RSPO's Stefan Forsberg and Karina Svensson talk about bringing music to Swedish children, then and now.
The blue concert hall at Hötorget (the Haymarket) in central Stockholm is one of Sweden’s great architectural masterpieces. Opened in 1926, it was designed by architect Ivar Tengbom during a period of expansion in the capital. The Stockholm Concert Hall was built to house The Royal Stockholm Philharmonic Orchestra – founded in 1902 – and to serve as an arena for the Nobel Prize Ceremony. Besides the main hall, the building also contains two chamber music halls: the beautiful Grünewald Hall and the smaller Aulin Hall. The Royal Stockholm Philharmonic Orchestra’s chief conductor Sakari Oramo was appointed in 2008, with his present contract lasting until 2020
