The Norwegian Girl´s Choir is an institution with a proud tradition that performs at the highest artist level. The Choir originated as the National Norwegian Broadcasting (NRK) Girls´ Choir, and now operates as an independent entity. We have made our mark both domestically and internationally by winning several prizes and awards.
We enjoy performing music from a wide repertoire; Norwegian folk music, classical works, and also complex, modern compositions commissioned & premiered by the Choir. Our singers are auditioned from amongst talented girls from the Oslo region. Our artistic director, Anne Karin Sundal-Ask has led several of the Norway´s best choirs and has received many awards and recognitions.
The Crown Princess of Norway handpicked The Norwegian Girls´ Choir to perform on her CD-release, “Sorgen og gleden” (Grief &
Joy) in 2008. The Choir appears often on TV & radio with Norway´s national broadcaster, NRK. At the 2009 Norwegian National Choir Competition in Trondheim the Choir won prizes and the overall competition award for best group.
