The Enskede Chamber Choir (ECC) is a mixed choir that consists of about 40 singers. The variation in age, profession and personality is well spread, but we all love to sing.
The ECC belongs to the Enskede congregation
in Stockholm, where the choir takes part in the life of the Enskede church. ECC does also give some concerts each year, usually in the Enskede church, but also during tours in Sweden and Europe.
Our director is
David Åberg since the fall of 2009. He works for the
congregation of Enskede, and does also conduct the children's choir.
Our tours have been many throughout the years. The ECC was founded in 1983, and since then both the amount of singers and their musical abilities have increased with their different leaders.
The ECC is financed by the Enskede congregation with contributions for tours, training camps and concerts.
Our repertoire is a mixture of sacral and profane music, from barocque to contemporary music. Among the major works during later years you could notice "Gloria" (Vivaldi), "God in disguise" (L-E Larsson), "Stabat mater" (J. Haydn), "A Christmas Oratorium" (J.S.Bach), "Ein Deutsches Requiem" (Brahms), Requiem (Mozart), Requiem (Duruflé), Requiem (Fauré), Requiem (Rutter) and others. During these concerts we have worked together with some of the major orchestras of Stockholm, such as The Radio Symphonic Orchestra.
The ECC could in November 2000 present its first CD-recording; "God in disguise" (L-E Larsson). It was performed during two concerts in the Enskede church in March 2000, together with members of The Radio Symphonic Orchestra and with Mark Levengood as the narrator. On the CD you could also find music by other composers, such as Oskar Lindberg, Knut Nystedt, Otto Olsson, Randall Thompson and Steve Dobrogosz´s "Cantica".
