Filialen is the biggest community 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 six-eight concerts a year. 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.
Our next concert is in Oscarkyrkan (T-Karlaplan), where we will be performing the St. Johns Passion on Sunday 24 March.
