On Wednesday 26 January, The King and Queen attended Young Music at the Palace in the Royal Chapel.
The concert, which included choral music, musical adventures and a string quartet, featured Adolf Fredrik's Music Classes and the Saphir Quartet from the State University of Music and Performing Arts, Stuttgart. Young Music at the Palace is part of the Royal Palace Music Festival, under the leadership of Mats Liljefors. It was King Gustav VI Adolf who first invited Mats to give concerts at the Royal Palace of Stockholm in 1970, and these quickly became a big success. The Royal Palace Music Festival celebrated its 40th anniversary in 2010. All the concerts over the course of the week are held in the Royal Chapel, which was inaugurated by King Adolf Fredrik and Queen Lovisa Ulrika when the Royal Family moved into the newly-built palace in 1754.
