Graabrødre Chamber Choir
Graabrødre Chamber Choir was founded in 1995 and has been in constant musical development and is considered one the best chamber choirs in Denmark.
The current artistic director is Egil Kolind.
The musical outset is sacred and secular vocal music from the Renaissance and Baroque period. Yet, recent works and contemporary repertoire – particularly by Nordic composers – are part of the Graabrødre core repertoire as well.
The choir rehearses weekly at the Royal Navy Church in Copenhagen and consists of 20 singers aged 30 to 60 years. Besides the serious artistic work in rehearsal, the singers have an enriching social community, which underpins the musical unity.
In addition to providing melodious musical experiences Graabrødre Chamber Choir seeks to disseminate knowledge about the composers, the texts and the musical context. It’s the choir’s aspiration to invite, rather than impress the audience. By offering vocal beauty and expression in concert the choir aims to make treasures of past and present accessible to a steadily growing audience.
Graabrødre Chamber Choir receives financial support by Statens Kunstfond.
