The international masterclass for choral conductors, Sacred Music Today, is being offered in Storkyrkan - Stockholm Cathedral for the third time.
 

The Building and History:

Since the 1300s, Storkyrkan – Stockholm Cathedral – has been at the heart of religious and political life in Sweden. Events and personalities have left their mark, inside and out, notably through royal weddings and the opening ceremony of the parliament every autumn.

The Cathedral is home to many well-known artefacts, such as the wooden sculpture St George and the Dragon and the Parhelion painting, among others.

The building itself has been extended several times and features painted ceilings dating back to its earliest construction.

During 2020-2022, the exterior of the Cathedral underwent renovation and restoration to its original baroque style from the 1740s.
 

Music Life:

The musical tradition in the Cathedral has attracted some of the finest organists and choir conductors in Sweden. Weekly concerts are held in the Cathedral and St Jacob's Church nearby. The music department is overseen by Mattias Wager, Johan Hammarström, and Gary Graden, offering three seasonal programs per year alongside several series of organ music and lunch music. Here, you can find the music's homepage with the general program: [link to the website].

Storkyrkan serves as the mother church of the Church of Sweden Diocese of Stockholm. Rooted in the Lutheran tradition, it extends a warm welcome to people of all backgrounds and beliefs.
