We are thrilled that the Royal Stockholm Philharmonic Orchestra, under the direction of Joana Carneiro, will be performing second movement, Alla Siciliana of Amy Beach’s “Gaelic” Symphony in E minor, Op. 32 (Women’s Philharmonic Advocacy Publications’ revised edition) for the Nobel Prize Awards Ceremony!

The Ceremony will take place on Sunday, Dec. 10 at 4:30 P.M. Central European Time (CET, which is 10:30 A.M. EST) and will be streamed live on the Nobel website.  The various events will be televised on a number of different channels around the world as well.

Please note that the Awards Ceremony is not the same as the Nobel Prize Concert on Dec. 8.  The Nobel Prize Awards Ceremony is where the laureates receive the Nobel Medal and Diploma from King Carl XVI Gustaf.

More information about the Nobel Prize events in both Stockholm, Sweden and Olso, Norway is here.  And for more information on the Royal Stockholm Philharmonic Orchestra, please visit their website We have been in contact with this orchestra for many months, since they performed the new edition of Beach’s Piano Concerto in August 2017 (the new edition of the Piano Concerto is available from Subito Music, although it is not yet listed in their catalog).  

More information on Amy Beach is here www.amybeach.org.  The new edition and the Amy Beach website are projects of Women’s Philharmonic Advocacy.
