Welcome to a unique concert experience with the international music camp Side by Side by El Sistema. Over 2000 young musicians together with the Gothenburg Symphony Orchestra and the Gothenburg Symphony Orchestra’s Vocal Ensemble participate in this powerful music event!
Side by Side is organized by Gothenburg Symphony Orchestra and is an important part of Gothenburg’s 400th anniversary celebration. For a few splendid June days every year, young people from around the world gather to sing and play orchestral music together, side by side with professional musicians. The camp promotes classical music while counteracting segregation in all its forms and building bridges between people, cultures, and continents.
Festival Concert will be a musical manifestation where the camp’s different tracks form massive choirs and orchestras with hundreds of participants in various combinations. Over 2000 choir singers and orchestra musicians of mixed ages as well as the entire Gothenburg Symphony Orchestra and Gothenburg Symphony Vocal Ensemble perform together in Scandinavium. All under the leadership of the camp’s many renowned conductors, headed by Ron Davis Alvarez.
