11 Apr The University Choir Lille MUKO

Trinity College Chapel

Copenhagen-based Lille MUKO is one of Denmark’s foremost classical choirs. Affiliated to the University of Copenhagen it combines the voices of talented students with more experienced professional singers. The 20th century saw a huge growth of interest in vocal music in Denmark and all the composers in the choir’s Festival programme have been attracted by a Scandinavian sound as well as by the music of central Europe.
Founded in 1967, the choir has enjoyed remarkable continuity, with only four conductors since its inception. This concert will be a particularly special occasion as it is their last performance with conductor Jesper Grove Jørgensen, who has been with them for 32 years.
‘ … exquisitely performed. The Lille MUKO Choir delivers the choral cycle … with skill and finesse.’ Guy Rikards, Gramophone
