Stockholm Concert Hall (Konserthuset)
The Stockholm Concert Hall opened in 1926 to house the Royal Stockholm Philharmonic Orchestra. Built in the neoclassical style of the 1920s, the blue building is reminiscent of a classical Greek temple and is considered a Swedish architectural masterpiece. The interior of the building is softly lit, transitioning from dark to light, and features grand staircases lit by impressive crystal chandeliers. The walls and ceilings of the minor hall known as Grunewald Hall were painted by Isaac Grunewald. The main hall’s interior was reconstructed in the 1980s, adding a new organ, which is now used for organ recitals at lunch on Thursdays. Standing outside of the concert hall is a statue of Orpheus by Swedish artist Carl Milles. In addition to more than 200 orchestra concerts held annually at the Concert Hall, it hosts the annual Nobel Prize Award Ceremony, as well as two annual festivals: the Stockholm International Composer Festival in the fall and Composer Weekend in the spring.
