As part of the Storytelling Project, which is sponsored by Signatur Stiftelsen, the group of young leaders of Dream Orchestra, learned through dance and music, the story of one of the mythical deities of Yoruba and Afro-Cuban culture: Eleggua.
Next Friday, June 16, the Dream Orchestra will offer its end-of-semester concert to welcome summer. The concert that will take place in Betlehemskyrkan, Gothenburg, at 18:00, will include all the pieces that they studied during this semester. Admission is free.
What meant a challenge from the beginning of 2023, became a reality that was applauded by those who heard the Dream Orchestra students play Danzón No. 2 for the first time, composed by the Mexican maestro Arturo Márquez.
Many of Dream Orchestra students will participate in the 2023 edition of Side by Side By El Sistema, which this year celebrates 10 years of bringing together, in the same space, more than 2,000 children and young people from different parts of the world to play music together.
