Community and closenessThe choir was founded in 1989 and currently consists of 40 experienced singers (10 sopranos, 10 altos, 10 tenors and 10 basses). They are students, LiU alumni and other singers wanting to sing at an advanced level. The choir produces concerts both on their own and in collaboration with the county’s orchestras, visiting ensembles or soloists. Our conductor is Director Musices Christina Hörnell.
We offer the unique community and closeness that choir singing provides for both singers and audience. Being able to meet in music and lyrics, and sharing our presence and expression in our meeting with the audience enriches our lives and gives us energy.
RepertoireThe choir focuses on the vocal interplay in the ensemble, and on musical expression. As the choir is musically based in classical choir music, we often sing a cappella, i.e. without any accompanying instruments. Our genre-fluid repertoire consists mainly of classical choir music, focusing on contemporary music.
We often collaborate with Östgötamusiken and Norrköping Symphony Orchestra in repertoires from various eras. We also produce genre-defying events, recordings and concerts with visiting musicians in various locations across Östergötland.
