Gothenburg Alternative Orchestra
GAO is an orchestra project based in Gothenburg that gives concerts, actions in the public space and or workshops. They consist of 20-40 musicians who have explored and developed the orchestral form from a contemporary perspective and take advantage of the musical diversity that already exists in society by transcending different musical and cultural genres and traditions and by using the knowledge and backgrounds of musicians.
They work with both adult and young audiences, preferably conceptually in collaborations and based on playfulness, interactivity, improvisation and critique of norms. The orchestra is led by Jorge Alcaide from Quartango and Lecheburre, among others. GAO is available in mini format with 8-10 musicians but comes into its own in a larger format.
