Frontside 2019

2020.01.16 - 2020.01.19

FRONTSIDE: Gothenburg International Chamber Music Festival

On January 16–19, the second edition of FRONTSIDE: Gothenburg International Chamber Music Festival takes place at the Röda Sten Konsthall.

FRONTSIDE aims to move you with matchless music played by superb international artists in concerts of captivating format: night concerts, wandering concerts and happenings such as The Grand Arrives and a torchlight procession.

After FRONTSIDE’s successful premiere in 2019, when we turned west towards the USA with the theme M/S Transatlantic, the theme for 2020 is Eastward.

The concerts will take place at Röda Sten Konsthall, on the ships Ostindiefararen Götheborg and HMS Älvsnabben, as well as in Sjömagasinet, Sankta Birgittas kapell (the Chapel of St. Bridget), 3:e Våningen and Waterfront Hotel.

The theme has an undertone which sounds the unique capacity of music to build bridges between continents and people. To communicate this to inquisitive listeners of all ages is our sincere concern.

All concerts are free for children and adolescents up to the age of 18, and one concert is intended especially for families.
