Description

Nidaros Cathedral Girls’ Choir was established in 1992 and is based in Nidaros Cathedral, Trondheim, Norway. The choir consists of the Girls’ Group (ages 10-13) and the Youth Group (ages 14 -19), with a total of 75 members. Their conductor and artistic director is Anita Brevik. As a group they aim to give the listener magical moments through a high artistic level and communication - from heart to heart.

The Girls’ Choir has always regularly works with orchestras such as the Trondheim Symphony Orchestra and the Trondheim Soloists. The choir has also collaborated with internationally renowned conductors such as Edward Higginbottom, Grete Pedersen, Andrew Parrott, Bob Chilcott and Anton Armstrong.

The choir has come to be recognized as one of the finest youth choral ensembles in Norway. They regularly participate in national ceremonies in Nidaros Cathedral. They have performed at the Royal Wedding ceremony for HRH Princess Märtha Louise and have performed for the King and Queen of Norway many times.

Oles who watched “A St. Olaf Christmas in Norway” may remember the Nidaros Cathedral as the location of the of the video produced in collaboration with St. Olaf Choir, both in 2005 and 2013.
