You don’t need to be an expert to attend a concert. But if you are interested in finding out more about the music performed and the artists appearing, we offer introductory as well as more in-depth information.
Concert programmes are normally available from the box office around two weeks before the event, or on the day of the concert in our foyers. Programmes provide information about the music being performed as well as the artists participating. Price: 20 SEK.
For certain concerts, a simple guide is given out free of charge on the day. This usually applies to family concerts, organ matinees, “soup” concerts and jazz concerts.
Ahead of our festivals, we publish special books containing portrait articles and essays, comments and notes on specific works and often unique photographic material. Prices range from 40 SEK.
15-minute introductions (Konsertkvarten)
The regular 15-minute introductions before the concert are canceled for the time being.
During festivals and special occasions, we provide more in-depth introductions or meetings with composers. Starting one hour before the concert, this is usually included in the price of the ticket. For more information, see the programme at our website.
Experiencing the Konserthuset building yourself and discovering the richly detailed adornments when you have the public spaces to yourself can be an incredible experience. The ambitious tour of Konserthuset’s art and architecture is given regularly throughout the year. We also offer the guided tour for families; How To Build An Orchestra.
