Rehearsals resuming, the choir is recruiting

Social distancing

The Academy Chamber Choir of Uppsala resumes its rehearsal work, which has been on hold since the outbreak of the COVID-19 pandemic in the spring. In order for the rehearsals to be carried out safely, adaptations such as rehearsing in smaller constellations are made. The choir is also looking for singers! Please fill in the registration form if you are interested to join UAK. We are looking for first-basses in particular.

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

Philharmonie Berlin

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.

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.
