Swedish music in the official Song of the Grand Prix of Nations Gothenburg 2019 & 4th European Choir Games!
European Choir Games is one of the largest choir festivals in Europe and on August 3-10 it is taking over Gothenburg, when 5000 singers from all over the world will meet and unite in singing.
One of the event organizers, Choir Centre West, has ordered the song. The chosen composer is the Swedish Susanna Lindmark, a creative choral conductor, composer and singer that with her unique artistic expression has been praised and awarded both in Sweden and international. The song is called “We can fly” and the composer says that she wanted to give the song wings.
– I wanted to encourage the singers to sing together and let the music flow through their heart and soul. Because we know that it’s possible – together we can fly!
There will be numerous occasions to hear the song – during the inauguration concert by a choir of 350 singers together with Bohuslän Big Band, along the week by one or several choirs and during the closing concert where a great arrangement for choir and Gothenburg Symphony Orchestra will be performed.
