Filialen is the biggest amateur symphony orchestra in Sweden. Its 200 members include music students and teachers, retired professionals, and amateurs who are doctors, journalists, postal workers, academics, businessmen, bus drivers, waitresses and shop assistants by day, and passionate musicians in the evening and on weekends. This unique composition means that the orchestra can perform works that are unusually demanding, both when it comes to proficiency and size.
Filialen gives about six concerts per year, although our 2018 programme includes 10 performances and 2019 promises to be even more inspiring! Some are our own productions, but we are also engaged elsewhere. Our repertoire is thus varied, with an emphasis on late Romantic and contemporary works.
Join us on June 3rd in Oscarskyrkan on Narvavägen in Östermalm (across from the Museum of History) for ‘In Space’ – a concert for the entire family with music from E.T., Avatar, Star Wars and other hits from the classical music repertoire inspired by the cosmos. Proceeds go to children in need.
