The chorus master is responsible for the artistic and administrative direction of the chorus, as well as ongoing planning and development. The singers are chosen yearly based on auditions. Most of the 80 members are either professional singers or young singing students from Finland and abroad. This gives the choir a particularly vibrant sound.
”It’s an exciting and historic moment for us to start working with a new chorus master, who has built his career at the forefront of European opera. I’m confident that with Schweiger, we can further enhance the high profile and artistic punch of our choir,” says Ville Matvejeff. ”At the audition, we witnessed wonderful chemistry between Schweiger and our choral ensemble.”
