Jazz at Konserthuset
Konserthuset is one of the most prestigious and historic jazz stages in Stockholm. Everyone has performed here, from Louis Armstrong and Ella Fitzgerald to the stars of our time, such as Esperanza Spalding, Pat Metheny and Gregory Porter. Konserthuset also has its own big band, Blue House Jazz Orchestra, which is led by Peter Asplund and Magnus Lindgren.
Blue House Jazz
In our Blue House Jazz subscription, each season, listeners get to hear the greatest Swedish and international jazz musicians. Concerts in the jazz subscription are held in the Main Hall at Konserthuset, but the smaller Grünewald Hall is often used for more intimate jazz concerts.
Stockholm Jazz Festival
For many years, Konserthuset has also been one of the partners for Stockholm’s major jazz festival and many of the festival’s concerts take place at Konserthuset each autumn.
Blue House Youth Jazz Festival
Konserthuset is the principal organiser of the annual festival, which focuses on members of big bands and jazz ensembles from all of Sweden’s culture schools, upper-secondary school programs focused on the arts, folk high schools and music colleges. The grand finale of the event is the Storbands-SM (the Swedish Big Band Championships) and a jazz ensemble competition.

The Fab 4 regularly tours Sweden and internationally, and has been acclaimed in Swedish and foreign press, including by the prestigious jazz magazine Down Beat. With over 6 million plays on Spotify, the song Uphill is an international hit.
Karin Hammar and her Fab 4 are currently at work on their third album, in which she has composed music for the unique combination of jazz quartet, string quartet and harmonica soloist The idea came to her in Tel Aviv in 2018, while playing with harmonica virtuoso Olivier Ker Ourio, one of France’s most coveted jazz soloists and band leaders.
The Fab Stringz is a string quartet formed exclusively for this project, consisting of Sweden’s top string musicians. They appear in large symphony orchestras, at our theatres, and behind popular Swedish musicians such as Orup and Skifs.

Singer and guitarist Gilberto Gil is one of Brazil’s most esteemed and beloved musical personalities. In conjunction with the Stockholm Jazz Festival 2020, he will appear at Konserthuset Stockholm, joined on stage by his sons Bem Gil and Jose Gil.
Giberto Gil is driven by a unique, vivid passion and belief in the power of music.
He received the 2005 Polar Music Prize for “unwaveringly spreading the richness of Brazilian music worldwide” with strong cultural faith. Over the course of his career, he has become known for his unique style that blends rock, pop, samba, African music and reggae. He was born in 1942 in the coastal city of Salvador in the Brazilian state of Bahia and he is regarded as one of the great rejuvenators of Brazilian popular music. In the 1960s, he made important contributions to the new movement in Brazilian music known as Tropicalismo.
Gilberto Gil has toured the world, produced 60 albums that have sold more than four million copies and has won nine Grammy awards. He was Brazil’s Minister of Culture from 2003–2008 and in 1999 he was designated UNESCO Artist for Peace.

This band, spearheaded by Renee Rosnes, first played together in 2017. All members have their own flourishing solo careers.
Word has spread quickly about their groove and sophisticated style. This year, Artemis is releasing their first album together on Blue Note Records. Head of the record label Don Was heard Artemis in concert in 2018: “Although each individual member of this supergroup is a bona fide jazz titan, these incredible musicians dwell in the rarefied air of bands whose whole is greater than the sum of its already sublime parts.”

After the musical portraits of Jerome Kern, Irving Berlin, Cole Porter and Harry Warren, it's time for the most well-known of them all: George Gershwin, the man behind the ever-green Summertime – among many others.
This evening Peter Asplund has his constant companion bassist Hans Andersson and drummer Johan Löfcrantz Ramsay with him. And as always in the Songwriters' Guide there are two specially invited guests.
"To make Gershwin justice I have invited a couple of favorites: the Danish pianist Jacob Christoffersen and Viktoria Tolstoy, one of Sweden's absolute greatest jazz singers," says Peter Asplund.
