The Sports Holiday Orchestra

The Sports Holiday Orchestra is formed every year in week 7, and is made up of young people aged 14-19. The week’s finale is a concert in the Great Hall of the Gothenburg Concert Hall. Musicians from the Gothenburg Symphony will coach the young musicians throughout rehearsals with conductor Thord Svedlund.

The Sports Holiday Orchestra is very popular among children and adolescents. While the sights are set on the highest musical level is the main objective to let the young musicians meet like-minded people. During the fun and relaxed atmosphere they create symphonic music together.

For many of the young, this is the first experience of playing in the symphony orchestra. Many choose to return year after year, or to continue his musical career in Vägus. The Sports Holiday Orchestra has played every year since 1998. The conductor Thord Svedlund is one of the founders of the orchestra. Normally, he is a violinist in the Gothenburg Symphony.
