Edvard Grieg Kor

Edvard Grieg Kor is a leading 8-part a cappella ensemble, with performances throughout Norway and abroad.

The Norwegian vocal ensemble Edvard Grieg Kor is the resident a cappella ensemble at Troldhaugen, the home of Edvard Grieg. Displaying versatility across all musical genres, they perform regularly with Bergen Philharmonic Orchestra and also form the core of the Chorus for Bergen National Opera.

They are rapidly gaining a reputation as a leading 8-part a cappella ensemble, with performances throughout Norway and abroad. They have had numerous works and arrangements written specially for them by composers including Jonathan Rathbone, and David Lang.

In addition to their busy performing schedule, Edvard Grieg Kor is dedicated to encouraging a cappella singing to the highest level across all age groups through their education programme schools and kindergardens, and also through their innovative Møt Koret scheme for amateur choirs and ensembles.

The eight singers also mentor Edvard Grieg Ungdomskor (EGU), which they formed in 2013. EGU is for singers aged 16-26 and specialises in classical a Cappella singing and they have also performed regularly with Bergen National Opera, and Bergen Philharmonic Orchestra, and have even performed with The Rolling Stones!

At Bergen International Festival 2019 EGK participated in three different productions, and also released their first solo album: «Edvard Grieg Kor sings Grieg» on the Chandos label.
