About Filialen

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.

We invite you to join us on October 23rd at 4pm for a concert of film music. Some of the pieces we will be playing are classical works that have been used in movies; others are works composed for a particular film. All of them are great! The programme is varied and inspiring and you’ll have a chance to see each section of the orchestra shine. The concert is in Nacka Aula. There are many buses that will take you there from Slussen (check out our Swedish concert page ’Filialen går på bio’ for bus numbers and a map). Tickets can be bought here, or from a member of the orchestra. Hope to see you there!
