Welcome to conclude the international music camp Side by Side together with the virtuosos of the future and Gothenburg Symphony Orchestra in this powerful symphonic concert in the Great Hall. There will be Grieg, Dvořák and Rachmanioff – and music from Star Wars!

Side by side with the Gothenburg Symphony Orchestra, this evening ADVANCED and PRE-ADVANCED ORCHESTRA, Side by Side’s musical spearhead, create a double symphony orchestra. Together with YOUTH CHOIR and Gothenburg Symphony Vocal Ensemble, they offer a high-class musical cavalcade, under the direction of conductors Emilia Hoving and Marjolein Vermeeren, and choir director Birgitta Mannerström Molin.

The concert offers magnificent symphonic music with Grieg, Sibelius and Rachmanioff on the program. We will also listen to excerpts from Ida Moberg’s orchestral suite Sunrise, Florence Price’s Third Symphony, and Daniel Nelson’s Cardiac Fanfare. The concert also includes music from Star Wars, in John Williams’ powerful “Duel of the Fates” for choir and orchestra. One of the great works of orchestral history, the last movement of Dvořák’s Ninth Symphony “From the New World”, then closes the concert and Side by Side 2024.

The international music camp Side by Side is organized by Gothenburg Symphony Orchestra and is open to participants 6-23 years old. At Side by Side, children, and young people from all over the world gather to play and sing together, side by side with professional musicians. The camp promotes classical music and builds bridges between people, cultures, and continents.
