National Day Concert

A philharmonic summer greeting hosted by Stefan Forsberg. Star soprano and court singer Elin Rombo and David Lindgren, well-known singer of musicals and pop, perform with the Royal Stockholm Philharmonic Orchestra under the baton of David Björkman.

For the first time ever, Konserthuset and the Royal Stockholm Philharmonic Orchestra present a concert for Sweden’s National Day! This philharmonic summer greeting from the blue concert hall is hosted by Stefan Forsberg, not only the CEO of Konserthuset Stockholm but a much appreciated presenter as well. Joining in are the star soprano and court singer Elin Rombo and David Lindgren, well-known singer of musicals and pop. 

David Björkman leads the Royal Stockholm Philharmonic Orchestra in this unique concert production which is livestreamed for free. 

”This is our way of manifesting unity in difficult and challenging times”, Stefan Forsberg says. ”We lift our eyes, and ears, to a brighter future by welcoming and embracing summer in the name of some beloved Swedish music. We hope that as many as possible will join us by their screens and also participate in a powerful singalong – not to mention coming together for the Swedish National Anthem Du gamla, du fria (Thou ancient, thou free).”
