The National Day ConcertAdd to calendar
Just like last year, the Gothenburg Symphony Orchestra invites you to a national day celebration on GSOplay. Enjoy joy and warmth in the company of the orchestra’s musicians, the artist Sofia Karlsson, dancers from the Gothenburg Opera, Dream Orchestra, the Gothenburg Girls’ Choir, a folk music ensemble and many more. Maria Möller hosts this atmospheric celebration, in Swedish, that is open for everyone to enjoy.
Beautiful scenery from the Concert Hall as well as striking city views and lush nature form an inviting setting for the national anthem, a summer psalm and atmospheric music by Roman, Tarrodi and Schubert. Sofia Karlsson sings a summer favorite in a new arrangement for the orchestra’s musicians, who also meet their chief conductor Santtu-Matias Rouvali in a new and unexpected way.
