On Monday 23 January, The King and Queen and The Crown Princess listened to the Young Music at the Palace concert in the Hall of State.
The concert included strings, percussion and jazz from the Falun Conservatory of Music and opera music from the Malmö Academy of Music. 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 great success. The Royal Palace Music Festival celebrated its 40th anniversary in 2010. To listen to a selection of the music performed, visit the Royal Court's Spotify profile.
