The Gothenburg Symphony celebrates the anniversary year with futuristic tones, choral singing and video art! Conductor: Ingar Bergby.
Celebrate the anniversary year with the Gothenburg Symphony! Our party offers futuristic tones, choral singing and video art. As a party gift, we’re letting two of Sweden’s most exciting composers, Klas Torstensson and Paula af Malmborg, pay tribute to Gothenburg with their first premieres!
As 2023 draws to a close, we celebrate a musical fireworks display for our 402-year-old city. Two exciting commissioned works look into the future – perhaps we can fantasize about Gothenburg’s next 400 years? The works City Imprints and Spår-Vägar are guaranteed to arouse the desire for discovery and add new color to the character of the city.
