The Classical Choir 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 sixteenth century 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, 30 years old, candidate of musicology and organ player at Churches in Kjellerup. He teaches at high schools in Aarhus and conducts another choir in Aarhus, too.
The choir is developing towards singing every second year with one or two other choirs.
In this period, until autumn 2021, we are in a pilot project with a network organization called “Herning Synger” (Singing in Herning) and The Jutland School of Singing. In this project, we are making projects for 7-11 weeks at a time with one or two final concerts.
Our next project “Sound in Space” is from August the 12th until October the 10th, Where we are going to work with a singing master most of the time, working with the resonance chamber, and the sound in the room, we are singing in. A recording of a few songs will take place, and finally, we have two concerts, in October the 7th in the Park School, and October the 10th in the Hospital.
You are welcome to join us on the dates mentioned in the “Korinformation” (Information to the Choir) on the homepage and experience for yourself!
