This event has probably been and gone!
Cathedral choirs and their choir schools are among some of the oldest European musical traditions. Denmark’s Copenhagen Royal Chapel Choir brings their glorious voices to New Zealand in April and May for a five-centre tour ‘Ascension – Nielsen, Lauridsen & Palestrina’.
The 46-strong choir including 30 boys aged 13-16 years, is rated as one of the finest in Europe with Le Figaro, placing them alongside the Vienna Boys Choir and Kings College Choir.
In Denmark the choir performs at major state and royal occasions and featured at the wedding of Crown Prince Frederik and Crown Princess Mary in 2004, and at the christening of their children.
Directed and conducted by Ebbe Munk, the choir’s repertoire consists of classical, contemporary and modern music. The award-winning choir tours to concert halls, cathedrals and festivals around the world.
