sommerCAM16

The Copenhagen Chamber Choir CAMERATA is taking a well-earned summer break, after a wonderful visit with our friendship-choir Uranienborg Vocal Ensemble in Oslo (Who btw have just released a great new CD, check it out).

We’re going to need our R&R, because we’re looking forward to an autumn season packed with amazing concerts. In august we’ll be joining the Danish National Symphony Orchestra for a concert with music by Danny Elfman. Then we’re teaming up with Sokkelund Sangkor to perform Max Reger’s challenging Op. 110. By the end of September we’ll be singing Verdi’s Requiem at the Royal Opera House together with the Royal Danish Opera, and to top it all we’ll perform Mozart’s Requiem and John Tavener’s Requiem Fragments for All Saint’s Day in the Church of Holmen.

See you in August!

CAMERATA in Oslo, Norway

In CAMERATA we are now looking forward to visiting Norway and our friends in Uranienborg Vocal Ensemble on a wonderful midsummer tour.

In the event of the 100th anniversary of the death of Max Reger, we are collaborating on setting up an artistically ambitious concert, performing his monumental Geistliche Gesänge, Op. 110 – three fantastic motets for à cappella choir. The program will also feature works by Mendelssohn and Brahms, Regers great role model.

In addition to this magnificent joint concert, we will also be performing our own concert titled “Nordic Stabat Mater”.  In this concert, we will be introducing the audience to two beautiful Nordic bids for a Stabat Mater, namely Stabat Mater Nordica, written for CAMERATA in the year 2000 by five Nordic composers, as well as the Stabat Mater by Norwegian composer Knut Nystedt. Both works are for choir and solo cello and with us, we have cellist Niels Ullner.

For invaluable support of the journey and the concerts, we would like to thank the Augustinus Foundation, the Oticon Foundation, as well as The Danish Conductors Association and the collective Gramex funds.
