As a member of the Friends of Chamber Music in Allhelgonakyrkan (KVAH), you are helping our chamber music association to continue our work. KVAH is a non-profit and independent association that presents concerts in collaboration with the Katarina congregation but also through concerts and other events on its own. The association's board serves as a program advisory council and is responsible for marketing, information at concerts and a number of other administrative tasks. Since its inception, pianist Bengt Forsberg has been the association's artistic leader; he has so far participated in more than 200 of its concerts.
The association has more than 200 members who influence through the board and by expressing wishes. In addition to the satisfaction of contributing to the local music scene, they have more tangible benefits: discounted concert tickets, member meetings a couple of times a year, information via e-mail and letters about upcoming concerts as soon as they have been decided, and special e-mails for each concert. About half of the concert visitors tend to be members, which is why there are good opportunities in the church and in the cafe under the church to get acquainted with others who share our interest in the art form. In this way, the music can be experienced as intended when it was written: as something to perform and enjoy among friends.
