Welcome to Sochi
Kammarkören Cantate from Sweden joins the circle of participants of the World Choir Games 2016
The countdown is on. In a few days the registration deadline for the 9th World Choir Games will end. Numerous choirs have already met the deadline and will celebrate together the biggest festival of choral music in 2016 - and one of them will be Kammarkören Cantate from Sweden.
The chamber choir Cantate was founded by Elisabeth Ekwing in 1989 and belongs to Kungsholm's Church in the Swedish capital Stockholm. At that time the choir consisted of 12 girls who had become too old for singing in the children's choir. In the 90's the choir developed into a mixed choir, which now consists of grown-up singers aged between 20 and 40 years. Since September 2010 the choir is conducted by Karin Skogberg Ankarmo, a professional conductor, organist and author of educational singing books.
The choir's repertoire mostly consists of sacred music but the group also set up Jesus Christ Superstar and rehearsed popular pieces by Bernstein and Jenkins during the last few years.
Kammarkören Cantate sings regularly at services and holds a few concerts every year. In 2014 the Swedish choir already participated in an INTERKULTUR competition: the Sing’n’Joy Vienna.
Therefore is INTERKULTUR delighted to welcome the singers of Kammakören Cantate at the World Choir Games 2016 in Sochi.
