A dynamic orchestra
A young, vigorous orchestra
The Malmö Symphony Orchestra was born in Malmö in 1925 but, in many ways, it is a young orchestra. After having divided its mission and being the region’s operatic and symphony orchestra, for many years, we have been actively working purely as a symphony orchestra since 1991.
One hundred gifted musicians of extremely high musical and technical quality sparkle in a rich and varied range of concerts. We have a large, enthusiastic audience – with pre-bookings at a level of 90 % at Malmö Concert Hall!
We are one of Sweden’s four major symphony orchestras with a national function. Of course, our principal function is to meet the needs of the local and regional concert audience, and to contribute to ensuring that the metropolis emerging around the Öresund region is offered a wide symphonic choice.
