The Nordic Opera Choir was founded in cooperation between the Herning Opera Festival in Denmark and the Reykjavík Opera Days in Iceland.
The project is financed by the A.P. Møller Foundation and is set to run from 2023 – 2025. The choir will consist of 30 newly educated Nordic singers and singers who are currently studying at music colleges. The singers will be recruited from all of the Nordic countries and work with different conductors and composers.
The purpose of the project
The Nordic Opera Choir for young talented singers, will be a center for talented singers as a center for a targeted development of the overall talent pool in the North. Here, singing will be the unifying community for Nordic coherence, networking and exchange of experiences and knowhow. We wish to create a platform for developing meaningful mentoring, cross country relations and network between industry professionals within classical music across the Nordic countries.
