The Norwegian Girls’ Choir The Norwegian Girls’ Choir, with its proud traditions, is globally recognized for its artistic performances. The now independent unit stems from the former National Norwegian Broadcasting’s Choir (NRK). The choir has made its mark, both domestically and internationally, by winning several prizes and awards.
The repertoire is broad, spanning from Norwegian folk music and classical pearls, to complex, modern compositions tailor-made for the choir. The artistic manager and director, Anne Karin Sundal-Ask has led several of the country’s best choirs, merited with awards and recognitions.
Her Highness, Mette-Marit, the Crown Princess of Norway, handpicked the Norwegian Girls’ Choir to perform as the only choir on her CD-release Sorgen og gleden (2008). The choir has also performed on several TV shows, as well as on the radio. Several well-known Norwegian singers and artists are alumni of the choir, including Elizabeth Norberg-Schultz, Hege Schøyen, and Anita Skorgan.
The Norwegian Girls’ Choir tours extensively. In recent years they have performed in France, Italy, Sweden, Scotland, and Japan. In 2012, the choir will tour the U.S., performing a custom piece by Norwegian composer Ola Gjeilo.
