The two ensembles are among the best in the country. Touring is an important part of their activities and – by giving concerts all over the world – the two have become important cultural ambassadors for Swedish music abroad.
Thanks to the orchestra and the choir, Swedish Radio is able to offer qualitative music programming to people all over the country. Independent of their income or place of residence, listeners have access to high quality art music and unique music experiences via live broadcasts.
Through the collaboration with the EBU, the European Broadcasting Union, many of the concerts at Berwaldhallen are broadcast abroad – sometimes in over 20 different countries – giving the programmes an audience of many millions.
Berwaldhallen Concert Hall is especially devoted to new Swedish music and commissions a large number of works from Swedish composers.
