Side by Side by El Sistema
Over five busy days in summer, children and young people from all over the world meet in Gothenburg to play in orchestras and sing in choirs. Choirs and orchestras at all levels give participants of all ages an opportunity to play and find musical inspiration.
Exciting conductors, musicians and teachers lead workshops and rehearsals, and the camp ends with magnificent concerts performed with Gothenburg Symphony Orchestra and Gothenburg Symphony Vocal Ensemble.
Side by Side takes place for the sixth year in succession in 2019. More and more children and young people are joining this event each year, and the big festival concert at the Scandinavium arena gives all participants a chance to demonstrate the power of music. More genres have been added and participants can now also choose folk and world music, and an Open Choir – a choir for young people with disabilities.
Side by Side aims to give children and young people opportunities to thrive and grow by playing music and singing together. The camp is a meeting place where young people can discover the joy and beauty of music, inspire each other and find their path towards their dreams and goals. By using the power of music we will counter segregation and build bridges between people, cultures and continents.
