Children and Young People
The first meeting with an orchestra playing classical music is a special experience; one that – here with the Gothenburg Symphony Orchestra – is characterised by curiosity, playfulness and creativity. Our events for children and young people have the same high ambitions as when we play to adult audiences, even if there is more laughing – both from us in the orchestra and from the children in the audience.
In addition to playing concerts for schoolchildren, we also invite young musicians and singers to develop their musicality and have fun with us. We do this for example in collaboration with VÄGUS, Västra Götalands Ungdomssymfoniker and University of Gothenburg Symphony Orchestra as both guest plays in our concert hall. Like the music contests, the Polstjärnepriset and Solistpriset which are being conducted in cooperation with us. The fall break choir with orchestra, the sports holiday orchestra, and the giant music camp Side by Side by El Sistema are our flagships.
