Be a part of The Fall Break Choir

Every autumn, young singers and musicians from western Sweden tend to meet in Gothenburg Concert Hall. Join us too – a guaranteed energy injection where you develop and get to know even more people who love music!

During the course, you develop vocally and scenically, and get to work with professional singers and educators in one of the world’s finest concert halls. The Final Fireworks is a concert in the mighty Great Hall in Gothenburg Concert Hall.

The autumn holiday choir is led with a warm hand by conductor Simon Kim Phipps. The choir is carried out in collaboration with the Swedish Young Musicians’ Association. Most participants are usually between 14-22 years old.

Fall Break Choir 2021 - application is open

In order to be able to follow the authorities’ recommendations regarding the spread of infection due to Covid-19, we will only be able to welcome choir singers for the Autumn Holiday Choir 2021, not orchestra participants. Due to the recommendations, the number of participating singers for the choir is also limited.

We do our utmost to arrange a safe and secure environment during your stay in accordance with the authorities’ recommendations. All participants will be given detailed rules of conduct to approve in connection with the course.

The choir is aimed at those who can sing from scores, and have sung in choir before. You should be well prepared for the music sheets. Most participants tend to be between about 14-22 years. Talk to your teacher to see if it’s the right level for you! If you want to see the sheet material before you apply, send an email to johan.andersson@gso.se.
