Choirs & ensembles
Verdi’s Requiem, Handel’s Messiah… a lot of music history’s most powerful works relies on a dedicated and inspired choir to lift.
Gothenburg Symphony has performed with both small and large choirs, but above all with the Gothenburg Symphony Choir who has sung with us since 1917. The core of the choir consists of Gothenburg Symphony Vocal Ensemble. Another ensemble with a close relationship to us is Baroque Academy Gothenburg Symphony (BAGS), driven by the desire to explore music from the 17th and 18th centuries.
