Danish National Vocal Ensemble

© Per Morten Abrahamsen

The Danish National Vocal Ensemble is an elite chamber choir of 18 singers who perform a cappella music as well as choral music with the Danish National Symphony Orchestra and other orchestras from the Nordic and European countries. The choir’s repertoire ranges from the Renaissance, through Romantic classics, to new works by the composers of our day. Several Danish and European composers have written works specifically for the ensemble. Among multiple recordings, the choirs’ 2015 CD ‘The Nightingale’ (OUR Recordings) received the prestigious Diapason d’Or de l’Année and two GRAMMY® nominations.
