During this concert you will listen to traditional choral singing in Swedish national romantic style that describes nature's flavors and greenery, newly written choral music mixed with rhythms from marimba and folk music in arrangements for choir singing. Welcome to an evening where feelings and expressions are united with unique driving tone from three different choirs!
The participating choirs are YMNA (image), a creative and committed lady choir that performs their music with a unique sound and responsiveness to both tradition and contemporary. The repertoire is wide, but with a focus on Nordic folk music and compositions by women from early renaissance to present. Ymna's conductor Johanna Thür is active as organist, harpsichordist and choir leader in the Haga parish in Gothenburg and founded the choir Ymna 1997.
VOCAL ART ENSEMBLE of Sweden has for decades been a strong voice in the Swedish and international driving life, always on the road, curious, engaged and challenging. The choir has collaborated with artists such as Magnus Carlsson, Lisa Nilsson, Tommy Körberg, Bo Sundström, Sofia Källgren, Uno Svenningsson and Sofia Karlsson. Jan Yngwe, who is Vocal Art Ensemble's conductor (since 1978) is a professor of choir singing and conducting at the University of Stage and Music in Gothenburg and is considered one of Sweden's foremost conductors of his generation.
PETRI SÅNGARE is a chamber choir domiciled in Malmö St Petri Church. The choir is the leader of the conductor Alexander Einarsson and has a broad repertoire with a focus on contemporary Western art music. Petri Sanger's main genre is a chapel music, but the choir also regularly performs standard works from the 18th and 19th centuries and then in collaboration with the Malmö region's leading musicians. Alexander Einarsson is a trained organist and choir conductor, and holds the position as choirmaster at the Gothenburg Symphony Orchestra.
RHYTHM ART DUO consists of Daniel Berg and Fredrik Duvling, who started playing together in 1992. They tour a lot in Europe, with more than 50 concerts every year. Rhythm Art Duo work closely with composers like Anders Åstrand, Maria Löfberg and Miklós Maros, who all write music directly for the Swedish percussion duo. Rhythm Art Duo collaborate with many of Sweden's regional music foundations and schools to encourage young people to start playing classical percussion.
