LONDON NORDIC CHOIR
EMOTION & PRECISION
WELCOME TO LONDON NORDIC CHOIR
The London Nordic Choir (LNC) is an independent 25-person strong choir based in Marylebone, London. Founded in 2016 by Director of Music Carina Einarson, the choir unites those with a passion for choral singing and capturing and promoting the unique sound of the traditional Nordic choral works.
Nordic people love to sing and choral singing is deeply rooted in the Nordic folk music. London Nordic Choir works to express this tradition of choral lightness combined with a reserved intensity - where the blend of tones and a mastery of vowel sounds are critical. But the best way to discover what the Nordic sound truly entails it to hear it-so come and listen for yourself!
The first years have been busy. Singing at the World Choir Project held at Piccadilly Circus, at the opening of the Nordic Matters Festival, the Chorus Choir Festival at the Southbank Centre, The London Mayor's Sheriff's and Recorder's Fund charity concerts at the Old Bailey among many others. LNC perform a lot of music from different eras and genres.
Winter performances in December includes Sankta Lucia Christmas concerts in both York Minster and Liverpool Cathedral. Further concerts were held at St John's Hyde Park, St Paul's Church in St Albans, at Greenwich Wintertime Festival and at the Southbank Centre.
