On we go

On Sunday 11 June the Göteborg Opera and Swedish Red Cross International Chorus will be performing on the Small stage.

Two performances, at 2.00 and 4.00 pm. Tickets SEK 25

The international choir is made up of Gothenburg residents who have come from all corners of the globe. Our repertoire is the songs we have brought with us, which tell the stories of who we are and what is important to us.

”On we go” has several meanings: we’re on the way. Take your places on stage. Let’s do this! 

The Göteborg Opera and Red Cross’ international choir 2017 presents the concert On we go on the Göteborg Opera’s small stage on 11 June. It’s a wonderful mix of folksongs from different countries, in various languages, from Arabic and Bengali to Quechua and Swedish! If you’ve ever wondered how to grow peppers, we’ll tell you everything in a song in Bulgarian! Do you want to know the secret to a really great wedding party? We’ll tell you in the Scottish song ”Mairi’s wedding”

The international choir 2017 consists of 7 singers from the Göteborg Opera and 55 enthusiastic singers from Gothenburg. Members of the choir are between 21 and 74 years old. We all live in Gothenburg and come from 23 different countries in Africa, Asia, Europe, the Middle East, North and South America. Some people have lived here all their lives, others came a few months or years ago. After a lively ”song hunt” at the beginning of the year, we commissioned eight new arrangements from the many songs that were contributed. We perform that selection today: songs from Andalucía, Bulgaria, India, Macedonia, Palestine, Peru, Scotland and Sweden, as well as an original song by a song-writer and performer from Burundi, living in Gothenburg.

A huge thanks to everyone who’s been on this adventure with us. On we go!
