GAO plays original music with influences from different continents and styles. With its 25 members, GAO is similar in size to a symphony orchestra, but with a completely unique expression and great cultural diversity. Book Gothenburg's alternative orchestra - GAO!

GAO is an orchestra that unites musicians and musical expressions, with great curiosity about the encounter and with the intention of learning from each other.

What is an alternative orchestra and what can it sound like? GAO reflects our times both in its music and its performance, replacing the rigid and hierarchical form of the traditional orchestra with playfulness, swing and innovative approaches.

GAO plays at festivals, churches and cultural centres, and has an interactive program for schools.


GAO has many members, and performs both as a full orchestra and in smaller constellations.
