Side by Side 2023: Closing Concert
We celebrate the camp’s 10th anniversary with colorful favorites from the classical repertoire. Join us on a thrilling journey where superheroes meet folk tunes, romances and great party music!
From Lars-Erik Larsson, Hugo Alfvén and Wilhelm Stenhammar we are offered some of Swedish music’s most beloved favourites. We hear French notes as the young Lili Boulanger describes a spring morning, and her close friend Gabriel Fauré offers his beautiful Pavane.
The concert opens with folk tunes from the mountainous landscape of Georgia, and ends with the finale from Shostakovich’s rebellious Fifth, a courageous composer who let his artistry shape resistance to contemporary oppression.
Side by Side is an international music camp organized by the Gothenburg Symphony Orchestra, for children and young aged 6-23. Through music we build bridges between people, cultures and continents! The camp runs from 17-21 June 2023.
