The Ninth SECM Biennial Conference is being done in collaboration with the Royal Swedish Academy of Music, which is located in central Stockholm at Blasieholmstorg 8. This was originally the Admiralty House, which then became the residence for some of the foreign representatives beginning about 1746. In 1790 it became the Foreign Office until the 1960s. Today, it houses the offices of the Academy. The venues for the papers on 19 and 20 March will be in the Ledamotsal.
The concert on Thursday night, 7:30 PM will be held at the Riddarhussal on Riddarholmen, which is the site of the public concerts (Riddarhuskonserter) during the 18th century, beginning in 1730. This is an open, public event, which is a part of their cultural series.
Saturday’s session will be held at the Van der Noot Palace on Söder at St. Paulsgatan 21. Built in the 17th century, it served as a residence for numerous Dutch ministers. In 1770 it was converted into a tobacco factory. It has served a number of functions since 1903, following its salvation from demolition. The papers for 21 March will be held in the Swedenborgsal.
