Christmas is fast approaching and so is the best musical tradition of the season: Handel’s Messiah with CAMERATA.
For three nights all the rush can be put on hold in favor of a large and moving musical experience in Holmen’s Church. “The most gentle amen” wrote Politiken’s reviewer last year and gave 5 hearts out of 6 for Copenhagen’s best Messiah.
The concerts will take place on 16, 18 and 19 December and tickets are available at Billetnet.
Soloists this year are:
Anna Forsebo, coloratura soprano
Hanne Fischer, mezzo soprano
Bo Kristian Jensen, tenor
Jakob Vad, bass-baritone
Conductor: Martin Nagashima Toft
The concert begins at 7:30 pm. We will give you a cup of coffee before the doors open at 6:30 pm.
We are immensely pleased to present the Swedish conductor Jakob Hultberg as the new permanent conductor and musical director of CAMERATA.
Jakob Hultberg has studied choral and orchestral conducting at the Gothenburg Academy of Music and Drama, and finished his conducting studies in May 2010 with a diploma in orchestral conducting from the Royal Danish Academy of Music in Copenhagen. Based on the proud traditions and high musical level of CAMERATA, it is a common desire and determination to consolidate the choir’s position as one of Denmark’s leading chamber choirs, and we are proud to continue to present musical moments with beautiful choral music at the highest level for our audience.
Jakob Hultberg: “Camerata has a unique quality as a chamber choir with its energy, its young voices, and its outstanding musical flexibility. It is my goal that Camerata shall be the best chamber choir in Denmark.”
Jakob will commence his tenure from 1 January 2014, but as early as 1 December he will feature with CAMERATA at the traditional Christmas concert in Esajas Church.
