Since 2005, SEB supports the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra in Stockholm and Gothenburg Symphony Orchestra. Our partnership also includes support for the school orchestra concept El Sistema. This worldwide movement started in Venezuela in 1975 by conductor José Antonio Abreu. El Sistema is now spread all over the world, including Sweden, and has proven to be a successful method, not only to train young musicians, but also to combat exclusion and drug abuse. El Sistema also promotes good leadership and entrepreneurship.
SEB and Konserthuset Stockholm have also developed Konserthuset Play, a web portal with recorded concerts with the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra and educational films about music instruments for children and youths. The aim is to make the concerts more accessible and inspire to music and learning.
SEB is not allied to any political parties. We do not provide financial support to any political parties, nor do we make any other type of political donation.
