VIDEO: Sweden’s Side by Side Camp Festival Concert
Last month, El Sistema Sweden and the Gothenburg Symphony Orchestra held their annual international Side by Side camp, welcoming participants from Sweden, Greenland, Venezuela, the U.S., and elsewhere to play and learn together. For the second straight year, the pandemic forced the camp to take place online, but the results were no less beautiful. Enjoy this compilation video of campers performing a mash-up of Maroon 5’s “Memories” and Johann Pachelbel’s Canon in D during the Festival Concert—further proof of the creative spirit’s power to connect us over great distances.
