11 of Europe’s best amateur choirs will try to impress a panel of international choral music stars by performing an unaccompanied selection of music in a variety of styles.
Blending spectacular staging and a live stadium ambience with eclectic and profound musical performances from a wide range of traditions and cultures, Eurovision Choir will take viewers on a colourful journey across Europe in search of the continent's pre-eminent amateur vocal group.
On stage are also the well-known Swedish orchestra Bohuslän Big Band together with a fantastic choir of about 350 singers from around the region. See the participating choirs listed below.
The show will be hosted by Petroc Trelawny and Ella Petersson, and adjudicated by Sweden’s Katarina Henryson, a founding member of pioneering a cappella ensemble The Real Group, British composer and conductor John Rutter and US producer and arranger Deke Sharon.
Conductor: Fred Sjöberg
