Christmas with CAMERATA

The Christmas season is fast approaching, and with it comes CAMERATA’s time-honored holiday tradition: Handel’s Messiah in the Church of Holmen.

A cappella:
At four concerts CAMERATA will be ensuring the Christmas spirit with a cappella concerts in Hareskov, Esajas, Nysted and Karlebo Church. We celebrate the traditional Christmas spirit, but also works with a little more “edge” is on the program. It will be four concerts with light, wonder, joy and beautiful sounds. See more in the concert calendar.

Messiah and the CAMERATA anniversary:
In what has become a Copenhagen yuletide tradition, the Church of Holmen will once again welcome over the course of three evenings more than 2,000 audience members eager to share the bliss, pain, rage and unbridled joy of Handel’s Messiah, presented each year by CAMERATA Choir to glowing reviews and sold-out concerts. Through the years CAMERATA has constantly renewed and reinterpreted Handel’s masterwork, so we are very excited that our faithful audience will get to hear it for the first time under the baton of new conductor Jakob Hultberg. This year’s Messiah concert series also mark the beginning of CAMERATA’s 50th Anniversary year, which will include many special concerts and events in 2015.

This year’s fabulous soloists: Ditte Højgaard Andersen, soprano; Andrea Pellegrini, mezzo-soprano; Mathias Hedegaard, tenor; Daniel Hällström, bass.

Tickets to Messiah can be purchased here on Billetnet (Ticketmaster).

CAMERATA warming up for anniversary

In 2015, the Copenhagen Chamber Choir CAMERATA celebrates its 50 years anniversary. It will be a year in which the audience is invited to a wealth of concerts tailor made to mark the choir’s history, and where it is today. The program includes among others, a series of concerts in Esajas Church, Copenhagen, where both old and completely newly written a cappella music is presented. 2015 also features three orchestral projects. Palm Sunday JS Bach’s St. Matthew Passion is on the program, and just after Easter Carmina Burana is on in collaboration with the Copenhagen Phil. And of course – no Christmas without it – Handel’s Messiah three times right before Christmas.

We will provide regular updates on the anniversary for the rest of 2014, both here on our website and on Facebook, YouTube, Twitter and Instagram.
