ABSALON CHOIR – INTERMEDIATE

19:30 - 21:30 Tårnværelset 3. sal 1600 kr.

The Absalon Choir welcomes all singers. The ones used to singing with others and those who mostly have their singing experience from the shower. This autumn we will have two choirs, one for beginners and one for intermediate singers.

About the two different choir classes:

Beginner
A choir where we start from scratch and get the basics in order. You don’t have to be completely new at singing, but it is okay if you are. The chosen songs will be at a level that everyone can follow, but there will also be songs that can provide some challenge and make you a better singer.

What’s most important is that you are willing to try your best and have fun with singing with other singers. It is not required that you can read music.   

Intermediate
This choir is for those with previous choir experience and a basic understanding of technique, rhythm and harmony. The songs will challenge you to become a better singer. 

The choir leader adjusts the arrangements to match the choir. You are not required to read music, but the sheets will be available if you can. 

Both choirs are spaces, where you can develop as a singer, together with others and where it is okay to make mistakes because that is how we get better.

It is okay if there are a couple of classes where you can’t come, but in that case, we ask you to practice at home, so you are up to date with the rest of the choir. 


About our choir leader
Mathias is an educated choirmaster and bandleader from The University of Copenhagen. Mathias has sung in ‘Københavns Drengekor’ and loves music – all from pop to reggae and rap battles. Mathias has a special affinity for Jamaican music.

“For me, it is important with a present and creative atmosphere, where I have a plan, but also where there is room for jamming and making the songs sound in our way as a group. I am looking forward to welcoming you in the Absalon Choir”
