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 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 autumn our first project will end in a concert in the Herning Library on the 1st of October.
Our next project for Christmas will be from the 3rd of October to the 12th of Decemberand will a. o. contain Hartmann´s Christmas Liturgia with one concert in Sct. Johannes Church and hopefully, one more.
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.
