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, 34 years old, candidate of musicology and organ player at the church of Odder. He teaches musicology and classical civilization at Risskov Gymnasium in Aarhus.
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 autumn our project no. 16 runs from the 14th of August to the 29th of October. It includes a late summer concert with our traditional collaborator the Herningsholm Museum at the 4th of September. The main project is the rehearsal of the Cantata “Vor Kære Jord” (Our Dearest Earth) which will have its first performance on the 29th of October as the musical opening of KMF 336 (Classical Musical Festival - for 336 hours). Participation in this project is at the cost of 350,- 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 PM.
– please, check news and updates on rehearsal dates under “Korinformation”.
