The Royal Academic Orchestra

Kungliga Akademiska kapellet (Royal Academic Orchestra) is Uppsala University's symphony orchestra. We play at academic ceremonies and give our own concerts. This 385-year-old orchestra is conducted by Stefan Karpe, Director Musices and Professor in Orchestral Conducting.

The orchestra rehearses on Wednesdays, and on Tuesdays there are rehearsals for each individual section with recurring musicians from orchestras such as the Royal Stockholm Philharmonic Orchestra and the Swedish Radio Symphony Orchestra. Kungliga Akademiska kapellet also offers scholarships for individual private lessons and the possibility to join the orchestra on tours abroad.
