Nidarosdomens Cathedral Men and Boys Choir, Nidarosdomens Guttekor, Norway’s oldest men and boys choir, are finally making their much-anticipated public debut in Singapore.
On 20-21 October 2017 the choir will perform by the bay of Singapore at Esplanade Concert Hall.
The choir is led by Bjørn Moe, the conductor and artistic director of Nidarosdomens Guttekor. Bjørn himself was a former Nidarosdomens Guttekor choir boy and has been conducting them since 1973. The Norwegian conductor was awarded the prestigious HM The King’s Medal of Merit in gold for his work with the choir.
Nidarosdomens Cathedral Men and Boys Choir will be accompanied by Singaporean chamber orchestra, re:SOUND, to perform Giacomo Puccini’s classic piece, Messa di Gloria, in what is expected to be a hauntingly beautiful rendition. re:SOUND is a chamber orchestra that is not led by a dominant artistic director or principal conductor, but by the musicians themselves.
