Grete Pedersen



Grete Pedersen is internationally acclaimed for her stylistically assured and musically convincing performances of baroque music, classical repertoire and contemporary music. For her work in bringing Norwegian folk music and traditional singing into the field of choral music she is regarded as a pioneer. Grete Pedersen studied orchestral conducting with Kenneth Kiesler, and choral conducting with Terje Kvam and Eric Ericson. She is professor of choral conducting at the Norwegian Academy of Music and is in demand as guest conductor for various professional choirs in Europe.

In 1984 Grete Pedersen founded the Oslo Chamber Choir, of which she remained the conductor until 2004. Most recently she has worked with the Slovenian Philharmonic Orchestra and Choir, BBC Singers, SWR Vokalensemble Stuttgart and Chor des Bayerischen Rundfunks. Music for choir and orchestra will form an important part of her work in the coming years, in close collaboration with Norsk Barokkorkester, Ensemble Allegria and the Norwegian Radio Orchestra. Grete Pedersen has done research into the late works by Joseph Haydn, and is also active as guest professor and conductor at institutions including the Liszt Academy and Yale University.
