The chamber music series in Allhelgonakyrkan (The All Saints' Church) was started in 1988 by Bengt Forsberg and organist Wivi-Ann Axelsson. Allhelgonakyrkan is quite simply one of the finest spaces for chamber music in Stockholm, perhaps in all of Sweden. The size is perfect, seating a little more 250 people. The acoustics are marvelous, it makes no difference where one sits. The space can be filled equally well by a solo voice or instrument as by a chamber orchestra or a choir. The goal of the Friends of Chamber Music at Allhelgonakyrkan (KVAH) is to produce at least one concert a month to give everyone the opportunity to experience chamber music in this unique venue. In addition we have a summer festival each year.
The Friends of Chamber Music is a non-profit organization which produces and supports the chamber music series, in close collaboration with the Katarina Parish, which is represented on the board of directors by organist Gregory Lloyd. Support from the chamber music society's membership complements the board's and artistic director Bengt Forsberg's voluntary work.
