Danish National Girls' Choir

Agnete Schlichtkrull / DR

50 talented girls aged 16-22, several centuries of Danish song tradition and a young, fervently ambitious conductor.  These are the key ingre­dients in the Danish National Girls’ Choir / DR – one of the world’s best girls’ choirs and one of Denmark’s strongest musical brands.

The Danish National Girls’ Choir was established in 1938 as part of the Danish Broadcasting Corporation (DR), and over the years the choir has garnered great acclaim both in Denmark and abroad. The young ensemble has a special ability to move effortlessly among songs, hymns, modern choral works and well known pop songs, guided by their charismatic young conductor Phillip Faber.

A unique combination of professionalism, commitment and obvious joy in singing makes the Danish National Girls’ Choir a natural ambassador for Denmark – both when they tour abroad and when they sing for world leaders and prominent guests at official events all over Denmark.

HRH Crown Princess Mary is the patron of the Danish National Girls’ Choir.
