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.
Our next concert is ‘Vattendrag’ – music by Nordic composers
inspired by waterways and the force of nature that is the ocean and the geyser,
on Sunday 15th September in Katarina kyrkan (on Södermalm).
Tickets can be purchased at the door, or from Kulturbiljetterna.se.
