From the Copenhagen Chamber Choir:
"Experience the beauty of the unique and touching Nordic a cappella choral tradition and catch a bit of that legendary Danish hygge.

CAMERATA Chamber Choir presents the choral music tradition of the Nordic countries and displays how the deep connections between nature and culture come alive in music. The repertoire covers some of the most famous Nordic composers, traditional and modern.

CAMERATA Chamber Choir is one of the highest acclaimed amateur choirs in Scandinavia. The choir sings repertoire from multiple centuries and continents, but its Nordic roots are often on show. The choir has a reputation for singing with blend, responsiveness, nuance and passion, and for creating concept programs that combine eclecticism with focus, taking listeners on rich and rewarding journeys.

Since 2018, conductor and artistic director of Camerata is Sofia Söderberg from Sweden. Söderberg is an experienced, multi award-winning choral specialist acknowledged for her technical rigor, physical precision and striking interpretative voice."

Thank you for posting this. The concert was beautiful, the songs, the voices, the setting, the acoustics. I am so glad I went. I will be trying to go to more music events at St. Paul's. It really amazing to have this in our community.
