Event has already taken place
Elsa Stenhammars´s cousin Wilhelm Stenhammar played the piano in Beethoven’s Choral Fantasy together with the Gothenburg Symphony and the Gothenburg Symphony Choir, led by Hjalmar Meissner at the première concert in the Concert Hall at Heden that cold winter day.
Thanks to the choir, the Gothenburg audience got to hear many of the great and popular works for choir and orchestra, as well as exciting premières. During its 100-year existence, Gothenburg Symphony Choir has held over 850 concerts – most of them in conjunction with the Gothenburg Symphony – and in its jubilee year there will be further splendid performances. Not least the great jubilee concert on December 8, when the joy of singing will flow and champagne corks will pop.
Welcome to the celebrations!
The Crown Princess couple, Crown Princess Victoria and Prince Daniel, are warmly welcomed guests at the celebration, on the day 100 years after the choir’s very first concert. At that time in 1917 the Crown Prince couple, Crown Prince Gustaf Adolf and Crown Princess Margareta, also honored the choir with their presence.
