Academy Festival Stockholm

Welcome to the Royal College of Music in Stockholm

Experience young musicians and professors from all over Europe. We are visited by no less than 250 musicians from 26 countries during an intense week in Stockholm.
For 17 years, together with KMH, we have welcomed over 7,000 musicians in total from all over the world.
A world-unique concept, which has meant that a large part of today’s most famous musicians have in one way or another been in contact with Swedish music life.
For those of you who have visited us before, you know that often at our concerts you get to experience incredible talents who you understand are the new generation of big stars.
The much sought-after international and national professors who lead master classes during the week will also occasionally perform at the concerts.

During the week we will have 6 chamber music concerts and 2 orchestral concerts. In total, we expect about 30 different ensembles to perform in everything from, for example, Piano Quartets, Wind Ensembles and Percussion Groups.
Schubert’s Fifth Symphony and Mozart’s 40th also on the program under conductor Johannes Gustavsson’s direction.
The festival’s repertoire is based on the most beloved and classical repertoire, but also some more contemporary music is included in the program.

Free admission

All the festival’s concerts have free admission and everyone must book their free ticket on our website to be admitted to the venue.
It is often the case that our concerts can be fully booked so make sure to be out in good time.


We are the Friends of Chamber Music.
We make sure that the whole of Sweden gets to listen.

We started out as Aurora and Old Ox music.
The number of visitors to our concerts has increased year by year. The number of seats for the concerts has increased.
The interest from the visitors was initially channeled into some friend associations.
But the membership grew.
The engagement of members and local communities and elsewhere developed and grew stronger. It became increasingly clear that we are part of
a movement with many enthusiastic friends of classical music.
We are so many that we want to manifest it in a descriptive name,
Friends of Chamber Music.

We are what we are called. We create classical music festivals in different places in the country. In concert halls in large places, but we also transform small local
churches and gathering spaces to cultural scenes with the biggest international artists.
Because friends of chamber music are everywhere people are.
We are a non-profit association that since 2006 has built up a world-leading concept with festivals and master classes in classical music.
On the biggest stages, where people come to us.
And on small local stages, where we get to the people.
