Side by Side by El Sistema is an international music camp that normally takes place in Gothenburg, Sweden every year. It’s organized by the Gothenburg Symphony Orchestra and an important part of the festivities surrounding Gothenburg’s 400 year anniversary. You can learn more about Side by Side at

Ok. But what is Side by Side: Digital then?

Because of the coronavirus, we cannot gather all our participants in Gothenburg this year. Instead, we moved the whole camp online, so everyone can join in, no matter where they are. That makes Side by Side: Digital a unique music camp, and something we hope will be something really special to be part of. A memory for life, that we create together.
