The Fall Break Choir with orchestra

Every autumn, young singers and musicians from western Sweden meet in the Gothenburg Concert Hall. During the course, you develop your voice, musicality and staging, and get to work with professional singers and educators in one of the world’s finest concert halls. The final firework is a concert in the mighty Grand Hall. Join you too!

The choir and the orchestra are led by Simon Phipps (conductor Svenska Kammarkören, Vägus and Läcköoperan) and is made in collaboration between Göteborgs Symfoniker, Kultur i Väst and Riksförbundet Unga Musikanter.
