The Children's Choir

Children between the ages of 8 and 12 sing under the leadership of choir leader Ida Rosén Hamrå. The Children’s Choir is a freestanding choir with its own projects and concerts. There are also be opportunities for these young singers to participate in GöteborgsOperan’s productions.

“Working with the Children’s Choir is meant to be fun-filled and challenging. The repertoire is mixed and we work with drama, singing, movement and rhythm”, says Ida. During the season, the choir works on different themes.

The Descant Choir

In Autumn 2012 we founded a Descant Choir, which consists of 35 boys and girls between the ages of 13 and 16. They work with concert performances, and therefore also concentrate on stage work as well as musical accomplishment.

The children are also active participants in developing their performances, both in terms of repertoire choice and stage work, so the Descant Choir works with a wide range of material.
