Evocations – Helene Stureborg’s Chamber Choir @ Cork International Choral Festival 2019
Evocations, noted for its sacred and reflective atmosphere, presents one of the finest European chamber choirs.
Helene Stureborg’s Chamber Choir (Helene Stureborgs Kammarkör) was founded in 2011 by conductor Helene Stureborg together with former singers of Stockholm’s Music Gymnasium. With approximately 35 active singers today, the chamber choir has acquired a high reputation on the Swedish choral scene, with one concert performed in the main concert halls of the Nordics to an audience of over 50,000. In 2016 the choir celebrated its five year-anniversary by winning the Fleischmann International Trophy here at the 62nd Cork International Choral Festival.

In 1994 she became the conductor of Kongl Teknologkören at the Royal Institute of Technology until 2002 and in 2014 she was appointed member of the Artistic Council of Statens Musikverk, among other positions
