The Orphei Drängar male voice choir was founded in 1853 in Uppsala, and remains active with tours and concerts in Sweden and around the world. The guest artist at this year's spring concert was opera singer Christina Nilsson. Together, they performed music including romantic and classical spring songs to welcome in the spring.
The King has been an honorary member of Orphei Drängar for 50 years, and received a bronze commemorative medal during the concert. The medal was first minted in 1928 to commemorate King Gustav V's 50 years of membership.
