The Academy Chamber Choir of Uppsala is a mixed choir with approximately 40 singers. Our extensive repertoire encompasses early music as well as new music written for the choir. Performing contemporary a cappella music has become our speciality; examples include first performances of Swedish composers such as Lars Edlund and Sven-David Sandström.

The choir is currently led by Stefan Parkman, who is professor of choir conducting at the choral centre of Uppsala University since January 2000.

Current events

A spring greeting from UAK, with social distancing

Uppsala Akademiska Kammarkör gathers on the steps of the University Building to welcome spring. We also took the opportunity to send a greeting to our good friend Maggie Brooks, who is retiring from her professorship at Yale University.

Canceled events due to the COVID-19 pandemic

Peace concert

We regret to inform that the entire peace concert project in Germany and Sweden must be canceled, as the restrictions and uncertainty make it impossible to realise the project as intended. Our ambition is to postpone the project to a later occasion, likely during 2021. We are currently reviewing the options to make this happen, but the decision will have to wait until the pandemic situation has stabilised and society is returning to normality.

Keep up to date!

In fond memory of Sven-David Sandström

Sven-David Sandström

UAK has performed a lot of Sven-David Sandström's music throughout the years, and has had the wonderful pleasure to make the first performances of some of his major choral works: Matthäuspassion, Fürchte dich nicht, and Magnificat.

There is even one first performace left! Te Deum in the spring of 2020.

On this picture we see Sven-David Sandström celebrating with the chairman of UAK at the time, Pernilla Åsenlöf, following the first performance of the Magnificat in Stuttgart, Germany, 2005.

Thank you for all music and inspiration.
