Successful 15-year anniversary party – see the pictures!
On November 10th, the doors of the Academy of Music And Drama in Gothenburg were opened to welcome ShareMusic’s friends. It was a day full of creativity and memories.
The day started with an anniversary workshop led by the same four artistic leaders who led the very first ShareMusic course in Sweden 2003: Nigel Osborne, Mike Fry, Stephen Langridge and Natalie Ayton. We had many new participants joining the group, as well as many who had previously participated in workshops and courses during the last 15 years.
In the afternoon, the audience officially opened the festivities. There was a photo exhibition with 15 pictures showing moments from 15 years of our work taken by photographer Peter Lloyd. Our ensembles Parasonic, Work and Elefantöra performed on stage celebrated by the audience.
There were a lot of people who shared memories and told their stories about what role ShareMusic has played in their lives. And of course, many speeches were held and toasts were made.
The last show act of the party was the anniversary workshop which performed a piece they have created during the day. At the end, everyone in the room joined in, dancing and singing together, marking the peak of a great anniversary party.
It was a wonderful and memorable day for us all. We want to thank our friends and partners in Sweden and abroad for all your congratulations wishes, great words and gifts and we are looking forward to the next 15 years!ShareMusic’s 15th anniversary party
