Göteborgs Konserthus Family concert: The monster doesn’t breath

A performance about big feelings, what is beautiful – and what is ugly. With organist Tommy Jonsson and the Gothenburg Symphony Orchestra.

Concert length: 1 h no intermission Scene: Stora salen
205-275 SEK Children 103-138 SEK

Have you met the monster who lives beneath the floor at Gothenburg Concert Hall? The big organ can sound friendly, cheerful, angry, scared and silly – and she can sing a note for a very long time without inhaling.   

A performance about big feelings, what is truly beautiful – and what is truly ugly. Along with the whole orchestra, we get to listen and tremble to scary music, and sing along to familiar songs.  

Organist Tommy Jonsson plays and talks about beauty and monsters, about sound and the mechanics of what is by far the orchestra’s biggest instrument. It’s time for the queen of instruments to shine!  

Recommended for ages 6 and up. 


Get to know Tommy Jonsson and Gothenburg Symphony.
