NORDIC VOICES is an internationally acclaimed six-voice a cappella ensemble praised for the depth of its programming and its extraordinary vocal skills. A technically brilliant ensemble, Nordic Voices made a quick sensation in international vocal circles and is now acknowledged as a leader of the a cappella artform. The group’s repertoire spans the Renaissance to the contemporary, on disc and in performances across Asia, Europe and North America. Nordic Voices is unrivaled in the fine art of sophisticated music-making and stylish performance, and as a result have been hailed by international critics for their live appearances and remarkable recordings.
One of Nordic Voices’ main goals is to be in the forefront of research into vocal art. The group explores new vocal techniques and new ways of using the classically trained voice. The singers can produce a wide range of techniques, from refined classical sounds to Mongolian overtone singing. Based in Oslo, Norway, the members of Nordic Voices were educated at the State Academy of Music in Oslo and the National Academy of Operatic Art in Oslo, where they specialized in opera, composition, church music and pedagogy. In 2014, Nordic Voices was honoured with the Artist of the Year award by the Norwegian Society of Composers.
