Music has always played a major part in Nobel Prize celebrations and today the Nobel Prize Concert follows in this great tradition.
The classical music concert features internationally-renowned musicians and conductors, and is held annually to honour the year’s Nobel Laureates. It is attended by members of the Swedish Royal family, Nobel Laureates and guests, and today has become a highlight of the Nobel Prize calendar.
