­The Berwaldhallen concert hall, which is included in the Sveriges Radio organization, is a leading culture creator, regionally, nationally and internationally. It is the home of the Swedish Radio Symphony Orchestra and the Swedish Radio Choir. All concerts are broadcasted via the Swedish Radio. Most of the orchestra’s concerts are also broadcasted to large regions of the world through the European Broadcasting Union.
By touring and performing throughout the world, our two ensembles have become important ambassadors for Swedish music and culture abroad. This means we can also attract some of the leading conductors and soloists, as evidenced by our present internationally renowned principal conductors, Daniel Harding and ­ Kaspars Putniņš.
An interest in contemporary music is clearly reflected in the repertoire. Swedish composers are regularly commissioned, and the maintenance and promotion of the Swedish orchestra repertoire is an important goal of the program planning. We also collaborate with Swedish pop stars and give concerts for children in an aim to broaden the audience base. Major tours in Europe, Asia and elsewhere are held thus being the guest of many important concert halls and festivals. The orchestra is a continuous nave in the well-established Baltic Sea Festival.

Arbetsplatsen ligger i kommunen Stockholm i Stockholms län.
