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 about six concerts per year, although both our 2018 and 2019 programmes feature 10 performances! 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 Saturday 21 or Sunday 22 March at 3pm in Tyska kyrkan (the German church) in the Old Town, Svartmangatan 16, when we will be performing the St. Matthew Passion. Tickets can be purchased at the church (although please do so in advance!) or online: https://kulturbiljetter.se/kassa/.
