Vivace is a Norwegian amateur mixed choir, founded in 1980. We have about 50 active members, and in addition to hard work aimed at meeting and reaching new musical challenges and goals, we value the companionship within our group, and try to maintain and develop our social framework.
We have a broad and varied repertoire: Norwegian folk songs, extracts from musicals, «classical» pop-music, contemporary music, hymns, masses and requiems. In connection with our participation in a choir-festival in South- Africa in 2002, we gave a number of concerts presenting African music. We always give concerts at the end of a project, often in collaboration with local musicians and orchestras, and sometimes with professional performers and singers.
We have worked with many different conductors over the years, each contributing to our learning and development. Currently we enjoy having Pål Espen Nielsen as an enthusiastic and much cherished musical leader.
