Polar Star Prize Final: The whole orchestra

The Polar Star Prize is more than a competition. During the autumn holidays, over 70 competition and course participants gather in Vänersborg to play together in ensembles and orchestras and refine the solo repertoire together with musicians from, among others, the Gothenburg Symphony as well as professors and pedagogues from music colleges and talent centers in Sweden and the rest of Europe. The next time everyone will meet again in Vänersborg is the 1st week of January. Then the focus is on the competition moments but also on preparations for the Polstjärneprize’s festival concerts in Vänersborg, Gothenburg and Oslo. In Gothenburg, the young musicians from Brahms’s Fourth Symphony play side by side with the Gothenburg Symphony as a festive prelude to the award ceremony when the winner will finally be crowned. Here you can experience the entire orchestra in Brahms’s 4th movement from Symphony No. 4.
