The jubilee camp Side by Side

In mid-June Gothenburg filled to the brim of children and youth participating in the camp Side by Side by El Sistema. Through music, we build bridges between people, cultures and continents.

The camp is part of Gothenburg’s 400th anniversary which we, together with children and young people from around the world, are celebrating with lots of joy and creativity all the way to the Jubilee Year 2021, and far beyond.

From 2016 the Gothenburg Symphony is the main organizer of Side by Side by El Sistema in close collaboration with the El Sistema Foundation Sweden. El Sistema is a program created in 1975 by economist and musician José Antonio Abreu in Venezuela with the vision that music can develop and create positive social change in a child’s life.

Save the date!

The plans begin to take shape for 2017 – be sure to leave a gap in the calendar to join the camp:

  • June 14-18 2017: Advanced Orchestra & Choir
  • June 17-20 2017: Basic – Intermediate Orchestras & Choirs

Children and young people from all over the world

During Side by Side by El Sistema in Gothenburg children and young people from all over the world meet for to play in an orchestra, sing in chorus, to create and develop. Parents and families are also welcome to participate in the camp.

The participants rehearse, socialize and creates a grand finale concert playing together with musicians from the Gothenburg Symphony. During workshops and rehearsals they meet exciting performers and artists. They inspire each other, develop together and gain new skills.

Bridges between people, cultures and continents

Side by Side by El Sistema is an important part of the city of Gothenburg’s 400th anniversary. Children and young people from all over the world are celebrating with lots of joy and creativity all the way to the Jubilee Year 2021 and far beyond. Our goal 2021 is to unite 30 000 participants in the world’s largest music camp for children and young people.

With a shared passion for music Side by Side by El Sistema builds bridges between people, cultures and continents.

“These kids have matured by three years in one week,’ said one of the teachers as we walked through Gothenburg. That really is the best description of the effect that the trip to Sweden has had on this group of young musicians from In Harmony Telford and Sistema in Norwich.”

Idag repade vi med ca 400 av barnen som är med på lägret Side by Side. Imorgon är det konsert! Då med ca 1200 barn och ungdomar från världens alla hörn (nästan...). Kan inte tänka mig något bättre jobb än detta. Få träffa fantastiska ungar, och se dem växa både musikaliskt och socialt. Nä, finns nog inget bättre. #sidebysidebyelsistema #sidebyside #elsistema #elsistemasweden
