Skanderborg Chamber Choir is a mixed choir from Skanderborg in Jutland, Denmark. The choir was foundedin 1989, and since 1992 our conductor has been Troels Lund Nielsen. There are 21 singers in the choir: six sopranos, seven altos, three tenors and four basses.
The choir has a very wide repertoire consisting mainly of classical music, much of it ecclesiastical. We perform music from the Renaissance to the present day, including composers such as Palestrina, J. S. Bach,Brahms, Mozart, Buxtehude, Carl Nielsen, Niels LaCour, Ola Geilo, as well as a number of Christmas Carols arranged by Sir David Wilcox and John Rutter.
Every other year we have a tour outside Denmark, and we have given concerts in St. Petersburg, Florence, Rome, Granada, Barcelona, Alicante, Rothenburg, and Sardinia, Sicily, Malta and Mallorca.
In 2020 our tour is going to Salerno, Italy.
Our conductor, Troels Lund Nielsen, attended Haderslev Cathedral School and went on to study at the Funen Conservatoire. For many years he has worked at the music schools in Skanderborg, and in Kolding, where he also directs the Youth Choir
and the Symphony Orchestra.
