Representation Choirs

Adolf Fredrik Girls' choir

Adolf Fredrik Girls' Choir is one, out of two, profile choirs of Adolf Fredrik’s Music School in Stockholm, Sweden. Having gained a world-wide reputation it performs extensively at concerts and choir festivals and is often engaged at important official events, e.g. the 2010 Royal Wedding and by other numerous institutions and companies. The choir cherishes the world famous Swedish choir tradition, thus chosen to represent Sweden at various occasions.

The choir, founded in 1973 by Bo Johansson, has also appeared in radio and TV shows and many recordings. Much has been said about this unique girls’ choir who through its constant renewal evolves towards new goals. This is done with new voices each year – new choir members are handpicked when the nine graders are graduating from the school.

The international opinion of the choir is expressed through several prizes won in choral competitions all around the globe. In 2012 they won a prestigious prize for youth choirs, category of secular repertoire, at “Il Garda di Coro” in Malcesine, Italy.

The CD Fairy Day includes Charles Villiers Stanford world premiere recording of Fairy Day.
