The Chamber Choir Laurus is a mixed choir formed in autumn 2004 to further diversify the choir activities on offer at the Vantaa Music Institute. During the past decades, this 20-strong choir has performed a variable, primarily a cappella repertoire of songs from many different musical genres and eras. In 2013, the choir and three other choirs, accompanied by the Baroque Orchestra Galantina, performed J.S. Bach’s St. John Passion at Paavalinkirkko (Helsinki). In summer 2015, the choir performed in Riga at the Nordic-Baltic Choir Festival, and in summer 2016, it performed and participated in a workshop at the Nordklang 16 Nordic Choir Event in Turku, Finland.
The choir accepts members through auditions. Each participant must perform a freely chosen song without musical accompaniment (for example, Taivas on sininen ja valkoinen or some other traditional folk song). In addition, each participant must perform short melody repetition tasks. Those in charge of the audition must also assess each participant’s optimal voice type. When new choir members are chosen, earlier choir experience is considered beneficial.
The time and date of your personal audition will be communicated to you after you have filled out the necessary application form in the Eepos Service.
