The possibility of pre-registration is available on 17/6 at 17.00-20.00 at konserthuset.
LUNCH BEGINNERS'Those of you who are participants at the camp can have lunch in Hvitfeldtska's dining room. At lunch, you as accompanying adults need to look after your children yourself.
ACCOMPANYING ADULT BEGINNERS' – PICK UP & DROP OFFWe from Side by Side want you who are registered as an accompanying adult to children in BEGINNERS to participate at the beginning of the first repetition and the end of the last repetition every day. However, we wish you adults to leave the room when rehearsals have started. If your child has special needs and needs your presence, you can remain in the classroom during rehearsal. You need to be nearby, a maximum of 20 minutes away, in case your children need you.
CONCERTSThe BEGINNERS' tracks will perform at Side by Side: Beginners in Concert on June 21 at 12.00 at HSM.
After that concert is over, you can join your child and have lunch and then go to Side by Side: Festival Concert at Scandinavium which starts at 15.00.
Those of you who are registered as participants in the camp do not need to buy tickets to either of these two concerts. At Side by Side: Festival Concert, it is mainly other tracks from the camp that are performing, but we would like to see the BEGINNERS' tracks be involved, inspired, sing along to sing-alongs and be motivated to continue playing and singing so that next year they can take center stage at the Festival Concert.
For you who have recently started to play your instrument and are 6-9 years old. This track does not require any preparations.
The sign-up period for Side by Side: Digital was open until June 3. You can make a late sign-up until June 18, but some content may not be available when camp starts.

Adults accompanying their children to a BEGINNERS' track do not need to book a Side by Side camp slot, only the children need to be booked in and paid for. NB! The exception to this is if you, as an adult, book accommodation with us, then you need to book a camp slot for yourself as well as accommodation.
If you are an adult with charges participating in the BEGINNERS' tracks you need to drop off and pick up the children every day and must at a minimum be there at the beginning of the first rehearsal and the end of the last rehearsal every day.
We wish you adults to leave the room when the rehearsals have started. Only if your child has special needs and therefore needs your presence can you remain in the classroom during the rehearsal.
