The Classical Choral Society -
Herning Korforening was founded back in 1941 – and is still going strong! We are a mixed choir singing a classical repertoire from a period starting from the middle age up to contemporary music. Our texts are in Danish, Latin, English and German – sometimes French. We are about 25 singers –our daily musical leader is Søren Bormann, 33 years old, candidate of musicology and organ player at the church of Odder. He teaches at high schools in Aarhus and conducts two other choirs in the area about Aarhus, too.
The choir is developing towards singing every second year with one or two other choirs.
For 3 years, 2018-2021, we have been in a pilot project with a network organization called “Herning Synger” (Singing in Herning) and The Jutland School of Singing. In this project we made projects for 7-11 weeks at a time with two final concerts. The project form worked so well that we still make projects of approximately 3 months each.
This spring our project no. 15 is a bit longer from 6th of February to 22nd of May and we finally have 4 concerts in Risskov Church, Struer Church, Sct. Nicolai Church of Vejle and Herning Church from 13th to 22nd of May. We are making the concerts together with “Vibykoret” from Aarhus, and solosingers and instrumentalists.
The main content in the rehearsals and concerts are Antonio Vivaldi´s “Gloria” and Bach´s “Chantata 196”. The Price for participating in the project is 400,- DKK.
Another way of joining the choir is to apply for membership via the FOF.dk where you can have membership for half a year at the time.
You are welcome to join us on the dates mentioned in the “Korinformation” (Information to the Choir) on the homepage and experience for yourself!
Rehearsals take place on The Jutland School of Singing, Nørregade 7D, in “KORSALEN”, 7400 Herning Mondays from 7 to 9.15 p. m.
– please, check news and updates on rehearsal dates under “Korinformation”.
