Mikaeli chamber choir is one of Sweden’s most well-reputed choirs, with a broad and accomplished repertoire.
The choir, based in Stockholm, comprises 32 experienced singers. Ever since the start in 1970 it has been led by Anders Eby, who is a professor of choral conducting and a conductor and teacher with various international assignments.
The ensemble’s passion for Swedish choral music has led to a large number of first performances, commissions and personal relationships with our greatest composers of choral music. The choir and its conductor also have an interest in historical music, which has contributed to the breadth of our repertoire; the audiences have been treated to everything from female 19th century composers to polyphonic renaissance music.
Over the years, the choir’s collaboration with Swedish orchestras and soloists has been extensive and profound. Mikaeli chamber choir appears on 24 recordings and countless radio performances, as well as concerts and performances on most of Stockholm’s major scenes.
In an effort to further these traditions, the choir has also for many years arranged workshops and master classes for young, aspiring conductors.
During almost 50 years, the choir has been a mainstay of Swedish choral life. Since July 2018, Mikaeli chamber choir operates as an independent group.
