Genre: Royal Stockholm Philharmonic Orchestra

The open-air Gärdet Concert

It's that time of the year, with the Royal Stockholm Philharmonic Orchestra and brilliants guests. Bring your picnic!

The Royal Stockholm Philharmonic Orchestra’s annual Gärdet concert by the Maritime Museum is an indispensable tradition for Stockholmers. It’s a chance to pack a picnic basket or buy food on-site and enjoy sublime music and perhpaps a sing-along on the green grass.

Norwegian conductor Cathrine Winnes, former chief conductor of the Swedish Wind Ensemble and known to a wide audience, not least through the SVT series She Composes Like a Man, leads the Royal Stockholm Philharmonic Orchestra. Guest artist is none other than the beloved Nisse Landgren, on both vocals and trombone. Fredrik Andersson, programme director of Konserthuset Stockholm, guides through a varied repertoire featuring several Nordic elements, historical classics and newer pieces.

In cooperation with Dagens Nyheter.
