Luleå Kammarkör

Brief introduction

Curriculum vitae

The choir was formed in 1964. To begin with it specialized on contemporary music, for which it got credit both in Sweden and abroad. In 1974 the choir received a cultural award from the state of Sweden.

Lately the repertoire has been widened to most genres " from Palestrina to the Beatles", that is classical music, folk music, pop, musicals and so on.

The choir usually produces its own concerts and also co-operates with lots of ensembles, soloists, conductors and composers.

Successful tours have been made in many European countries as well as in the US.

Monica Wasberg is the present conductor of Luleå Chamber Choir
